    how do I frag xenia?

    place a small rock (or whatever you want the frag attatched to) next to the xenia colony. one or more of the stalks will move onto the rock and you can remove it easily.

    monti cap.

    You can also wedge the frag between two rocks and it will eventually attach itself. that is the method i prefer

    Premium Seachem line : Aquavitro

    i should have said , fuel ions, and calcification are the only products i can reccomend. i havent used the others. i used the calcifacation to bring my calcium up to my desired level and have been dripping kalkwasser ever since.these products are really too expensive to keep a large system...

    Premium Seachem line : Aquavitro

    i won the entire aquavitro line of products at our local club. the fuel, ions and calcification are the only products i would recommend. use the fuel sparingly it is quite potent. many in myclub noticed soft corals to close up when used as directed. seachem support suggested to use half dose.
