purple pseudochromis

well i had a purple pseudochromis until i got home from work he is a beautiful fish and all but he was a terror in my tank except that my yellow tang is the boss and he picked on my domino damsels and pretty much everything else but my yellow tang and baby hippo (he is between one inch and inch and 1/2) and clowns they just mind their own business so i had to take it to the lps and they changed it to me for two Banggai cardinals about an inch long ill post some pics of them

Congratz on the cardinals. Much more docile.

P.S. - you should try using a period every once in a while.

Waiting on the pics.

You might wanna move the xenia to a higher spot - unless you want it to spread upwards to everyhthing in it's path. You say it's growing fast already. IMO, not good to keep them low in the tank - again, unless you want it to move both horizontally and vertically. They will.

Correct. Higher placement doesn't give it a path to move up quickly towards the light and to new rocks. If the xenia can blow/flow in the current and touch anything 2" away, yes it "can" spread IMO.
