I would say that you are one of the lucky (or unlucky) ones that xenia is happy in their system. I'm under the same curse in that it loves my system. That is some impressive growth.

cool. the other side of the tank is actually the same as this but my mated clown fish takes it as their shelter. they never touched my anemone which used to be on the rock on this pic. i never saw my anemone again after the xenia took over the rock.

Xenia does not do well shipped.

That looks like the elongata variety. I'm guessing from the pic and length of it, you've got in in a high flow area. Obviously it likes it, but those stalks are unusually long IMO. I had stalks of that stuff where the trunks were as thick as my index finger.

What kinda lights you got over it BTW?
