Pulsing is the opening and closing of the polyps which can only close and not retract. The pulsing also action adds motion in the aquarium, especially when they are in large groups which look like a field of pulsating flowers. There are many species of Xenia corals that aquarist can easily propagate with colors such as white, pink, brown and cream. Xenia corals also range in size from a couple inches to ten inches tall with large branches.
