Not necessarily your problem, they seem to thrive in low to high lighting and low to high flow. They thrive in a tank or they dont. I have them growing in my sump with almost no lighting and I have them 6 inches under 2x250 MH. I have noticed that the less light they have, the more branchy they are and the higher they are they seem fatter and fuller.

Xenia are very fickle some need strong light and some dont. They get long and branchy in low light because they are reaching out for it. I had a 20gal that was being overrun by my xenia. They were short, plump and the hands were furry. There were some that split all the way up my back wall until they were on my filter intake and on the water surface under 120w leds.
