I keep my Xenia on the sand bed to prevent it from spreading. Well it just keeps growing on top of itself and is in need of serious trimming back. What is the best way to frag it or thin it out?

Just use a sharp pair of scissors and cut off what you need to. The pieces can then be put in a small bowl full of rubble until they attach for frags.

Wow, that simple?!?!? I was thinking I had to get some of the white base for them to live... Thanks, I had no idea it was that easy!

Yeah, it's pretty easy. The link below goes into some detail about this, although they were scraping the Xenia off the sides of the tank as opposed to cutting branches off.

You can also rubber band to a rock if you want to keep it from blowing into the tank and taking over your life :-)
