middle to high on LR, with high flow. Ive heard placing lower in the tank it tends to spread up smothering other corals, but my xenia has not expanded like that and its middle tank. I wish it would spread a little :p

how did you place it in the tank? My snail has a tendency to be a little rough by knocking frags where I cannot reach them..small snail, acts like a big turbo

You can put it in a pile of rock rubble and let it attach, then move it upwards in the tank. That is the only way I have been able to attach Xenia to rock...let it do its own thing.

Just don't place it anywhere where it can take over. It's a pain to get rid of.

If you want to segregate it from your main structure you can create a bommy in the sand. To attach to live rock, a petri dish with a mesh net over the top, acting as a dome, will keep it from drifting. You can use a toothpick or even a needle (better piercing) through the stalk to pin it in place. I've also successfully dried the bottom stalk, dry a rock fragment, and use super glue gel to glue it in place. The glue will dry in under 1min if you don't overuse it

Super glue works great....but I've found that you need to get the GEL....once you paste that on, let it sit for about a minute and it's ok to go in the water (it may still be a little loose but it'll harden).

Yeah, be careful of what you wish for....I put a really small stem in a 3/4" PVC plug last week...I mean it barely took up a 1/4 of it.....now it's almost covering the whole thing and I need to move it before it covers my other corals.

Neat stuff though when you watch it!
