Coral, Xenia White-on stick (Fiji)

Product Description

Product Description

Xenia Coral are colonial animals with multiple individual polyps attached to a piece of solid substrate. They form stalks as they grow and have eight-tentacled polyps. Aquacultured Xenia are hardier than wild-caught species and tend to reproduce quickly. Therefore, provide adequate space between them and sessile animals, especially other types of soft corals. They require a low to moderate light level combined with a medium to strong water movement within the aquarium. For continued good health, they will require the addition of iodine and other trace elements to the water. They contain the symbiotic algae zooxanthellae from which they receive the majority of their nutritional requirements. Additional weekly feedings of micro-plankton or foods designed for filter feeding invertebrates are also needed.
