The Xenia Coral, is an amazing colonial coral that holds many individual polyps that are latched onto a piece of coral rubble or live rock. This coral will form additional stalks in order to reproduce as it grows. This coral adds such a fantastic aspect to any reef aquarium as it not only provides a great flower like polyp and pink colour but also has the ability to pulse, whereby the polyps are opening and closing in order to release waste and gasses, which is one of the most amazing sights to see in a reef tank.
This is a great beginner coral and does not require too much from its owner in order to thrive in the home aquarium. In order to reach its full potential it should be housed in an aquarium that has moderate to high lighting and moderate to high water flow in order to reiterate its natural environment.
This coral is also known to be one of the fastest growing in the industry and therefore it is crucial that there is ample room around it when positioning it into your aquarium. Also for continued good health, it will also require the addition of calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water.
Though this coral will attain the majority of its nutritional requirements from the lighting through photosynthesis, it will also benefit from additional food sources in the form of micro-plankton.
