So as some of you may know I just moved but during that move I have pulsing xenia on my spray bar in my tank that when I turn off my return pump it is above the water line. So, from when I pulled the plug on my tank to filling back up and turning it on at the new home (4-5 hours) my xenia was out of the water. During that time every hour I resoaked a paper towel and draped it over them and only 1/3 of the colonies stalks died! For all you that think corals are extremely delicate and sensitive here's proof that they can handle more then you may expect lol

A lot of coral are capable of being out of the water for extended periods of time. There are places on the reef that are susceptible to tidal flows, and some coral is out of the water for a few hours every day. It can be hardy stuff. Unfortunately, I still manage to kill more than my share of it.
