If thats just regual normal output, then that xenia is going to die. Not enough light.

Id say 3-5 watts/gallon of PC, VHO, or MH. Xenia like strong light, and just your regular normal output light is not gonna do anything. Please return it and get your money back before it dies.

Maybe a coincidence, but mine got better and pumped well when I got my phosphates in check.

mine wouldnt pulse under pc that well but grew great !! as soon as they were under mh they started to pulse again!! also have read that xenias will grow faster in a tank with little or no skimming !! i skimmed 24/7 and they grew from 2 small frags i got from reefrunner to about 15 nice size pieces !! untill this weekend when the air died and tank overheated lost them all :-(
