Xenia sp.

Pulsing Xenia is a fascinating coral to watch! The polyps rythmatically open and close, supposedly as an aid in gas exchange and feeding. Xenia requires good light and water movement, as well as iodine additions in order to thrive. Under the right conditions these corals grow very rapidly.
