    ChemiPure Elite works great. However I don't think that's the cause for your Xenia not pulsing. How's the flow on them? They also require high lighting.

    I was thinking flow also...too much and they wont need to pulse.

    I am thinking, possibly, high nutrient levels "could" play a factor here too, if these arent in good/high flow. More suspended nutrient mean the nead to pulse less....I am thinking....

    Says the guy who has never been able to grow Xenia. Its my kryptonite....
