View Full Version : Xenia Losing "fingers"

03-16-2008, 10:20 PM
Here is my concern:

The xenia are losing all of their "little fingers" (the part that pulses) They look like they are slowly growing back, but I can't figure out why this is happening? Can someone please help me! I have no fish in my tank, only a clean up crew. I suspect there is a pistol shrimp in there due to the large amount (hundreds) of baby shrimp swimming around recently. I dont know what is doing this and I dont want my corals hurting.


I have had my xenia in my tank for two months. They are always fully extended and pulsing happily. I have checked all the water parameters and they are all safe.

That happens to mine as well. Every time one of my fish decides to "dine out" and have a little more then just mysis. :biggrin:

Thanks, I understand, but I dont have any fish yet, my tank is only 2 months old and I only have a clean up crew in there,

Any other ideas?
