Xenia coral

Mine did the same thing. I changed the bulbs in my T5 fixture and they started pulsing again like crazy! Not sure if that was a coincidence or not. Is your xenia in an area where it gets flow? They don't seem to pulse if they are getting flow. Mine is in an area where it gets a little flow, and if I turn the PH off it pulses again. Mine have grown lots of new pieces too. If you have it on a rock it will move and grow up towards the light!

Alk.5. Ph 8.2, Calcium 380 salinity .023. Nitrate, nitrites and ammonia are zero. Phosphate is .25 ppm. Could it be the phos?

xenia are known to stop pulsing, doesnt mean theyre dying or anything, sometimes they just do. i know the newer colonies on mine dont pulse, or when mine are budding/creating new tissue they dont

My zenias stopped pulsing after 6 months of being in the tank, then slowly but surely they schriveled down but still alive. Been that way since. Had them for about a year and a half. Everything else thrives.

Readings seem to be okay. How old is your tank? Alk. is a little low but not that bad.

I've been led to believe xenia thrives in more dirty systems

The tanks birthday is December 26, 2009. It looks good if you didn't know that it was suppose to pulse you wouldn't think anything was wrong
