Close your hand without bending your fingers, reopen, repeat. That's how I mimic the behavior when explaining to my wife why I'm putting foil all over my aquarium.

Like previously mentioned, no one really knows why xenia pulses. However, I have noticed that my xenia seems to pulse more in areas of lower current.

I also am unsure what effect lighting has on the pulsing. I have kept xenia under fairly low light conditions (3 wpg PC) and it pulsed just as hard as when I have kept it under high light (7 wpg MH). HTH

Me too. I've read that with the water flow, they don't need to expel gases they way the do in more still areas. Then again in a high flow area, one might not be able to tell if it is pulsing or not anyway.
