Pulsing xenia/waving hand.

How will I stop this from spreading. It was my son's and wouldn't grow in his tank so I kept moving it to mine and then once it recovered he would try again with the same results. This time we left it in my tank and I did not foresee the rapid growth. It's attached itself to some of my main rock work and now I see two branches of it on opposite ends of the tank. I assume it let's go and floats until it lands somewhere. Either way I am a little afraid it will take over my tank.

I moved a good portion to the bottom of the tank. You can sure tell it like the bright light.

It likes phosphates. When dropping them below 0.05ppm to favor stoney corals, the colonies can crash. You can use a few other coral species to hold it in check. GSP will stop its advance.

I attached mine to a magnetic rock on the left side of my glass so that it wouldn't invade my rock work Click image for larger version
