I have noticed that it is kind of coming apart. Does this mean that it is done??

give it time and space. dont move it around. i just put my cutting into the tank and let it float around until it found a place in the sandbed. it attatched to some gravel in the sandbed over the course of a week or two. i then set the xenia and gravel on to a rock in a place with medium flow and medium light and it has been thriving since. i believe it enjoys iodine supplements as many softies do. and the rest is history

I hate to be the pessimist, but..If its not doing well after a couple days, your params may be off. (hi po4/po3, etc) I have literally pulled pieces off lr with my bare hands and tossed in my other tank. Its usually pulsing (or trying) the next day when the MH are on. IS the condition of the xenia such that it is white? (Bleaching?) or does it appear to be sort of shrinking? Coming apart is not good. If you have a QT tank with a decent light, you may consider moving it there..

GL!

I looks like it may be bleeching. What does this mean? Water temp is around 80-81. Just checked my water parameters, all looks good.
