    Additional Information & Description

    One of the most peaceful corals I've had, and extremely sensitive also. It takes 1.5 seconds for it to pulse (timed 10 pulses and it took 15s), it does change some I believe depending on the conditions.

    Great looking coral. It is a classic and usually a newbiw must have.

    I must have something this xenia likes because it's growing pretty fast. Odd thing I've noticed is that it can move, very very slowly, but can move. Probably moved 1/8" since I've posted.

    Yours is sensitive? I couldn't kill mine lol. I got a very very small frag (1/4") when I first got it, got it to about 1/2" then dropped a 20lb rock right on top of it when I was aquascaping. It shriveled up to nothing...just a speck and then bounced back like no tomorrow. Grew to about 5 stalks and is about 3" and very bushy. I cut two stalks of it recently because I don't want it to get out of control.

    Lol, I had the same thing happen, just a spec of tissue and I saw something moving and was like no way. I say sensitive because if damaged a huge piece may die, but yes regrow. Such a strange coral. I put mine on its own rock so I can move around when it gets bigger.
