    the ones in a lot of flow you wont see pulse, if the ones in the low flow area not pulsing then they are probably still adjusting to your water or they are not happy at all.

    if they are in from friday check all your parameters. they are not happy with something in there. how long has your setup been running now?

    It is still a mystery why pulsing xenia pulses. There was a recent study that made some advancements on it though. But they are like bubble tips where some inflate their tips and others dont.

    I know you can't check it with a test kit locally but it is a sign that your iodine levels are low....

    Had a bunch in my pony tank with very little flow and they pulsed like crazy...

    Yip.
    But I would go half the dosage of whatever brand you buy to start off with as too much is not good either.
