Xenias

Here are my xenias as they start to move and execute their plan of attack to take over the universe....of my fish tank.

Week 1


Week 3



Sooner or later I will regret acquiring xenia. But for now, wow, they are fun to watch!

Yes they are neat corals but need constant pruning. Color got much better after you had them a little while.

Prune it, like, from the base?

I don't have those cool plastic bags that the LFS has. Can ziplocks do the trick?

Anyone in the Maryland Area who wants to swap frags with me? All but one frag left that rock on the first pic. So I have an instant fragged xenia.

I have ich in the tank right now so I can't trade the frag. Sorry guys.
