You get at at least one thick branch of pulsing Bali Xenia growing colony on a small piece of live rock. This Xenia coral species has a white stem and large, brown pulsing "hands" or polyps. This coral grows and spreads very quickly. It is easy to keep in most aquariums and adapts to most lighting. One of the best beginner corals.
Aquacultured Xenia are hardier than wild-caught species and tend to reproduce more quickly. They require a medium to high light level combined with a medium to strong water movement within the aquarium.
Xenia does not possess any apparent stinging capability and will not bother other corals, but can tend to grow over and shadow its neighbors. When water conditions are right Xenia can reproduce by division at an very fast rate and may require frequent pruning to keep it from crowding out other corals.
Xenia contain the symbiotic algae zooxanthellae from which they receive their nutritional requirements and do not need any additional feeding.
Care Level: Easy
Lighting: Moderate to High
Waterflow: Moderate to Strong
Scientific name: Xenia elongata
