I have some pink pulsing xenia frags I would like to part with $5 each

I also have probably 2 baseballish sized pieces of chaeto, will trade for rice krispie treats...
No pics, but it is green and hairy lookin : )


Does anyone else use krylon to keep their corals looking good?

individual stalks or

individual stalks or two. I am not too concerned about the sizes...I have not fragged them yet. I don't have a frag tank, nor frag rack, so I will wait till someone wants some. I think there are like 6-10 polyps per stalk. They grow fairly quick with good tank conditions.
this is what mine looked like in January when I got them

Frags

How do you go about making a frag of your xenia? Do you have to cut each stalk off of the colony or do you just put frag plugs next to the colony and wait for it to populate? Once I get a skimmer set up I would definitely like to get a frag from you. Maybe it can tell my xenia how to get bigger.

A hobby is something you do in your spare time, but your passion is doing something you love.

Frags

You can do both - they grow like weeds with good water chemistry. I've found with Xenia it's not worth the hassle to cut them as within a few weeks they will grow over anything in close proximity.

Fill your tank with $5 bills, pour some gas in, light it on fire.......then you'll know the real cost of reefing.
