    Nice. Xenia are very good as part of your filtration in your sump, keep them there. Perhaps add another bulb for some extra light.

    xenia are pulsing soft corals scuba
    ben, i have them growing like weeds in my display tank, so wanted to see how they'd do in the sump.
    my single 5cm frag has grown into a 20cm diameter monster in less than 2 months and have them popping up all over the place as well, was hoping to grow them in sump for any of the guys that wanted sum.. :p
