Sorry, I don't have a picture on this one just yet, but I will get one up here soon.
My wife picked up a small chunk of coral from our LFS
for free (incredibly small) a couple days ago. She was hoping that it is a pulsing xenia, and they kind of look the part. However, they aren't really pulsing. If you look at them for a while you see them kind of close up every once in a while, but it doesn't quite look like they're pulsing... it looks like any other coral being scared by something. However, they do this when there is no apparent stimulus to scare them. Does this sound like the behavoir of a very small pulsing xenia? :p
I also had another difficult-to-explain question... the (potential) xenias did not come on a rock. They are just all part of a purple, rubbery substance. I don't know if that's just the coral with no rock or what. I've never seen such a thing. Hopefully I'll be able to post a picture tonight or tomorrow.
