SOME???????

Chris is the main supplier for the state of Delaware lol.

Seriously his Xenia's are incredible. More active pulsing than many I've seen too.

mushrooms, kenya trees, zooanthids - I can cut a ton of frags for you - check my gallery for pics of my tank and corals - if you're interested, shoot me a PM ;)

ps - Chris' xenia crop blows mine out of the water :lol:

that must because your tank system is cleaning up with all that skimming!! it's a good thing.,... it's a bad thing... Xenia beds make good live filters!! don't they?

the growth in my tank has been funny since the calurpa event. i think things are starting to turn around now tho.

i dont know how good of a filter they are, i mean thats why i started letting them grow so much, but anyone that has smelled xenia has to wonder what it releases into the water

I read that on GARF a long time ago. They once set up a large clean bottom tank with nothing but racks of xenia frags in it and good lighting as a filter for a couple of their 180 reef tanks. They seemed to think it worked real good, and they grew tons of xenia for sale.

Yup, it takes time for a reef system to regroup after a crash type event. but its interesting to watch and experiment with. I seem to be experimenting most of the time.
