Mine almost never pulse - they "wave" and if the water circulation is off for anything they will droop.

At first the lack of pulsing worried me, but since they have tripled in size since Halloween I'm not too worried about it anymore.

I have them under VHOs. The guy who fragged them for me had them under MH and they pulsed for him - Not all will behave the same way, but this was my experience.

Where in Oregon are you lcoated - There is a local marine society meeting on the 19th in Portland, I can fwd you the info if you are interested. Lots of good guys/gals and lots of trading...

I'm in Medford. I'd love to know about the meet though......

I noticed something last night. My Xenia were pulsing with the "night lights" on.... but not pulsing with the lights on..... I've got PC's... they wave with the light on.....

Thats odd. I have a little 1" colony of pink pom pom xenia, and they pump 24/7. If your xenia isnt still pumping, it may be a sign of low ph or alk. My xenia always loses alittle bit of its pulse if the alk is off. My xenia also pump at night as well as day Over 1 month my xenia has doubled its size!

Mine pulse. Sometimes at night, but almost always during the day. Under 420W of CF on a 55g. The extra light gave the xenia a nice yellow coloration on parts of the stalk (I assume some zoo.. moved there). Downside of the extra light is the induvidual stalks shorten up.
