Frogspawn is another green coral you might like. Some of the smaller leathers are also great beginner corals IMO.

Cool, thanks for all the suggestions! Yeah My xenia is wilted to nothing..

It was doing great and growing everywhere till I got my G4 psk and then it started going down hill..

I read that it likes lower water quality. So I guess my skimmer is doing a good job!

I had a single xenia sprout that grew into a HUGE colony over about 3 months. Right before I had my death run in the 125g the entire colony literally melted in 2 days and there isnt a trace I ever had xenia.

Not sure I'm gonna put any back in, as it did start to grow ALOT and I hear it can take over a tank.

As far as your mushrooms, they don't like alot of light, do you have them on the floor with some kinda overhang? Mine are growing like crazy under a slight overhang of rocks I placed them under.

I alsohave the same issue in my pico with the shrooms. I added new lights and now they are tiny. Hoping they will adjust soon.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
