I just put my first peice of coral in my tank, a small clump of three heads of pulsating xenia. They are doing great, and they are open and pulsating at most times......
My first question is it normal for it to open and close sporadically throughout the day, and night? I can see it pulsating under my moon lights, all night long.
Sometimes it two of the heads will be open and one will be closed, then it will open and another one will close, they are only closed for about 20 minutes at a time.
A couple more questions: How long does it take it to grow? And how ofter should I feed it and what should I feed it?
I want it to do well and grow as fast as possible.
It is under a 96 watt CF
in my 10 gal
, which gives it 9.6 watts per gallon. I have it high right under the lights too! Is this too much light?
