Silver Xenia Frag - Xenia sp. (ORA)
Xenias are one of the most spectacular corals for the aquarium and large colonies can be truly magnificent. These corals are fast growing, and once established are quite hardy. Unfortunately these corals do not ship well, so getting a healthy specimen can be very difficult. Some Xenia colonies are known to grow to nuisance levels at times then die back for no apparent reason and different aquarists have different experiences and opinions at what may cause Xenia to grow or decline rapidly.
These corals like medium to strong lighting, and medium to strong water movement. The colonies can benefit from filter-feeder supplements and iodine supplements and generally do not tolerate high nitrate levels. With their rapid growth, Xenias can easily dominate the upper portions of your reef under ideal conditions. Do not place close to other corals that may become overgrown.
ORA Frags are propagated by Oceans, Reefs & Aquariums, the largest marine ornamental fish hatchery in the world. They continuously develop new frags and many are available in very limited quantities. We are proud to offer ORA's corals as part of our coral frag collection.
