    Common names: pulse coral, Xenia, pom pom coral

    Difficulty Level: Xenia are some of the best beginner corals available. They are usually very tolerant to most conditions, cheap and easily found.

    Feeding: These corals are primarily photosynthetic though some think they may have the ability to absorb nutrients through their feather-like fingers.

    Lighting (Level 3 to 10): Xenia can be adapted to almost any lighting though faster growth will be seen under higher lighting conditions.

    Water flow: Moderate to high water flow is important. Higher water flow may increase pulsing activity.

    Placement: Xenia has a slight sting which should be taken in to account, but it is their quick growth rate that should be considered the most. Leave them plenty of room to fully extend and grow
