Thank you! That was very helpful!

It looks like my Xenia has grown even more.

Here are some photos of the tank with my new iPhone 4S.

There is even a photo of my Peppermint!

Looks nice! I ordered a xenia and hope that it is in better starter shape than the GSP I got...looks like purple paste on a rock.

Thanks! When I got this piece of Xenia, it was really grown an huge, the my temp went really high, and most of it melted except for one stalk. That small little stalk has grown into this.

That's how it looks when the polyps are retracted. It can take days to adjust. If after a week, no sign, I would move it to a different part of the tank with different flow.

I like my Peppermint. The only thing is he is very shy, but I heard they will be less shy of there is more than one in the tank.
