Pulsing Xenia is one of the most beautiful thing you can see in an aquarium. If it weren't so invasive...

Yeah I loved having Xenia and Anthelia in my tank. Great motion and it added a very natural feel. The problem is the stuff grew like weeds and I had to go in every week and remove a bucket of it. Smells awful and is a real PITA. Finally I had enough and pulled all soft corals out.

After it kills something that cost you three times as much as the xenia you will begin ripping them out like weeds and then getting ****ed because even after you think you got them all they come back.

I've found that the only thing that halts xenia is cold water.

It's so hypnotic! I think it needs more xenia though.

Nice. If I had the space and money for a second tank, I'd love to try something like that -- an unconventional aquascape with just one or two types of corals.

That's why I think a xenia only tank is good. They will fill up all the spaces cheaply, then stop.

Lol ^^^^ This.

My buddy gave me some when I first started and I was like OOOOoooOOOoooo free coral! It's so pretty.....

6 years later and 3 tank moves I still had it randomly appearing after thinking I got rid of it a gazillion times.

I found the best method was simply taking any rock that had it and chucking it into the sump with no light.

Within 2-3 weeks it was toast. Then I'd put the rock back in and do some more.

Successfully eradicated it.

But wait....I had 3 friends all state how AWESOME my Xenia looked when I did have it, and they all wanted some BADLY, even begged me.

I kept saying "no...nonono....you do not want this, this is like inviting your mother in law over and she breaks a hip and has to live with you for eternity"

But they kept asking for it saying "I don't care if it's invasive, it won't choke out MY corals, I'll trim it back...Easy! I LOVE THE MOVEMENT OF IT!"

So, I was like "okay! here ya go pal!"

All 3 got some.

All 3 are now trying to nuke it without admitting it was a terribad idea to take some.

But hey, it looked awesome for the first 6 months, AMIRIGHT!

So technically, my Xenia lives on....and will....foreeeeeeeeverrrrrr

LoL...Same here! I was able to trade a little of it to a coral farm recently. Ive thought of starting my nano and throwing it in there! I'm liking the idea of the sump too. Going to give that a try instead. Thanks!!!

I'd rather have Xenia in my tank than Aptasia. Yes its a burden to some but it really is cool to watch. I had a BC 29 and it was a bush in there and my clowns loved it to host. See my avitar

I've had to use Aiptasia X to get rid of it. Prayers and a flamethrower work well, too.
