Since we're on the topic of Xenia, I ran across this while looking at other stuff, and it kinda blew my mind.

(scroll to the bottom. That xenia shrimp is incredible.)

It's a whole little cryptic world of fish and inverts that mimic xenia and live embedded in it.
I've had it stuck in my head since I saw it, and a small part of me has been thinking about reworking a hunk of my tank to devote to a xenia community.

Wow, I had no idea. That is so cool and certainly could make a really neat corner in an aquarium. I had to really study the last photo to even see the shrimp! Thanks for sharing.

Great new fish! Those Cardinals readily spawn in aquaria. So fun! Having new fish is great.

I also like those cardinals because of there peaceful nature, but much more so because of there tendency to swin in the open.
