Good news! It looks like the PWC did the trick. The xenia is practically back to normal. I don't know if the phosphates are still a problem. (I don't have a test for that). But Nitrites are 0..... confirmed by three separate samples. My old test kit, my new test kit and the LFS test kit!

Yipee!
Thanks for your thoughts!

You got some GREAT! advice in this thread. The first thing I always do if I have a problem is a PWC, followed by testing.

Xenia can be strange sometimes and we still do not fully understand why. The one thing I can tell you is that if you hear, "xenia likes dirty water," this is NOT true. I kept pom pom in pristine water and many others have as well. I think the misconception comes because some corals grow faster when there is escess nutrients in a system.

One thing I have experienced is that xenia is sensitive to low PH.

Most people in my local reef club have so much that everybody gives it away.

I don't know if I have hearty variety or not - but she sure seems like a trooper. Every now and then, she crumples over in a heap and then hours later she is standing up and looking proud again.

Today I moved all my livestock into my new tank(s). So everybody has "100% clean" water and the xenia looks great!

Thanks again!

That sounds like good news to me.
