You can trim, trim, trim.... Just like you prune bushes and plants.... Then you can either attach the excess to little pieces of rock and give them away or sell them, whichever...

You can also throw away the excess and just be done with it. Pruning is needed with Xenia and it will also grow better by doing so. HTH

Two things I have done. One is upgrade the tank and the other is to frag the corals and sell back to the LFS. I dont understand your LFS not wanting the cheaper frags and reselling them for alot of profit. You can also sell or trade them on the Barter/Trade forum.

Well, this is a great problem to have. Xenia does have a habbit of taking over the tank at times. If your LFS does not want any, try a local reef club if you have one. Otherwise, offer to give the LFS some free "samples" to see how they sell. They may change their mind. Xenia likes to climb up, so place some small LR rubble chuncks around the colony nad watch it spread. You can then easily seperate the frags.
