    Hey guys,

    Got back from 3 months away and have hacked out a fair bit of xenia. It is all pulsing merrily (even while it was floating in the transfer tub!) and in good condition.

    So if anyone wants some please let me know and we can arrange a time. If you dont have anything to swap thats no problem - but if you do have a few zoas or a mushroom or any little something lying around I wont say no! ;-)

    For the newbies, this is a great coral and fascinating to watch, please feel free to grab some to help build your new collection. But make sure when you place it in the tank you keep it in a spot that it can be managed. Xenia can grow very quickly and smother other corals.

    I will upload pics of the parent colony and frags when I get home.

    Please keep me a piece or two.
    Dont have any frags at the moment (except for the odd brown button polyp and ric) but as i rebuild my collection will be happy to reimburse you then.

    Sure thing bud. The pink/purple zoas have shrunk to a very small size and arent really doing anything now. I really dunno what there problem is! Everything else in my tank is doing great. But they aren't in any condition to frag...

    Hey Williet & Eric. I am happy to send some up with your courier.
    But most of the frags are quite small and quite a few people already want locally - so let me post pics later this evening (some of it will already be gone) and then you guys can decide if its worth it or not.

    @AQUA-NATORE I'm not yet sure what my weekend looks like as I've got a lot of labwork to do at University. Evenings are generally best for me. I will only know if i'm going to be available on sunday the day before :p
