Well, my xenia is doing good, its about 3/4 in big. I was wondering, how long will it be untill it gets huge? It isnt branching out much, its on like a single layer, when It grows will it start getting branches? I have the fiji pink pom pom xenia, if that helps. I just cant wait till it gets huge!!!

SaltwaterTeen - Welcome to the board!!!

How long have you had the coral? Give it some time, and you will notice nice growth. Can you tell us a little about your set-up?

give it a few months and it will really take off....then you will probably wish you didn't put it in your tank. just keep it isolated on a rock of it's own. mine grows like crazy now and i have to trim it constantly. i learned to keep it on it's own rock without it being able to touch another rock.

when you trim it also make sure to get all the pieces. i had a single polyp float free and it landed on a back rock. well within a month it was a huge stalk and has spread to another rock.

LOL, doh!! If that happend I would be like "Sweet! More xenia to trade in for store credit!" I want to get alot of xenia, and trade for zoo's, I really missed the zoos I used to have, but one of my fish ate them and so did a snail, so I got rid of 'em and hopefully, I can grow zoo's with success!

I think it also true that pom pom doesnt grow as fast as thin bar xenia. I had silver thin bar coming out my ears. My pom pom really never grew too much.
