Xenia snack

I just noticed today that my xenia is being picked at. I watch my tank alot and didn't notice it yesterday. The only culprit who comes to mind is my coral beauty. I have not had any other corals eaten and have never seen him do it. All my other corals are fine. Is there anything that prefers xenia specifically?

For me it was the reef safe emerald crap that picked at my xenia. He did not last in my reef very long. Nor did he last in my puffer tank either.

I'd wouldn't worry about it, my xenia looks like it's being eaten all the time and there is nothing wrong with it. Honestly, at this point, I wish something would eat it (It just started to spread)

Mine's spreading nicely too, but all of the non-hermit crabs are now residing elsewhere.

The Coral Beauty is a likely culprate. My xenia was looking terrible and I discovered it was my flame angle. I got rid of the angle and it is doing great again...Lando

I saw my beauty take a bite last night. I am very sad but I think I will get rid of her
