My LFS gives me $10 store credit for each rock with xenia on it. They turn round and sell it $25.

You can buy rubble rock or some LFS will give you the rubble left over in LR shipments. Sometimes I just take some LR from my sump and smash it up. I have used snail shells that are no longer occupied as well.

It's funny you mention this... My Xenia Just grew on top of one of my sleeping hermits, I just noticed it today when I saw the shell under the stalk, after I took a closer look, the hermit was still in the shell. So i had to pull the stalk off the shell and let the hermit free!

It would have been awesome though to see a hermit running around the tank with a big xenia stalk on his back!

The Chad, you can make your own rubble with a hammer and a a screw driver

-get a little plastic tupperware and fill it with LR rubble, then you can cut the head off the xenia and put it in the container and set it on your sand bed in low flow to get it to attach. Good luck
