Xenia Question

I got a small frag of xenia from a friend and cant seem to find the best spot in my tank for it. What type of areas do xenia do best in?(i.e. current, lighting, etc.) Thanks for the help!

mine always liked high flow and high lighting. but they will adapt to almost anything. if you start them at the bottom of your glass they will spread and crawl up towards the light.

Current=low to moderate
Lighting=ranges from PC's up to MH and depending on the light depends on the placement. It is a very hardy coral.

Thanks! Thats kinda what I was figuring. I originally put them in the bottom with current but only about 1/2 opened so I took it away from the current last night and this morning it didnt look to great. I put it back down to the bottom and its looking a little better

That is a neat look , any pics from the front of the tank?
I never could keep xenia alive not sure why . I have heard several things including they like a bit dirtyer water ? I finally just gave up and quit trying to keep it
