At Zoo Box Reef Aquaculture, we offer high-quality Pulsing Xenia Coral that has been carefully acclimated and is ready to be added to your tank. Here's our care guide for keeping your Pulsing Xenia Coral healthy and thriving:

  1. Lighting: Pulsing Xenia Coral can thrive under a range of lighting conditions, from moderate to high levels of intensity. It's important to find a balance between providing enough light for the coral to grow, while also avoiding overexposure that can lead to bleaching or other issues.

  2. Water Conditions: Pulsing Xenia Coral prefers water that is well-circulated and clean, with stable temperature and pH levels. It's important to maintain a consistent water quality and monitor levels of ammonia, nitrate, and phosphate to ensure a healthy environment for the coral to thrive. Perfect choice for beginners as they will tolerate a wide range of paremeters.

  3. Feeding: Pulsing Xenia Coral obtains the majority of its nutrients through photosynthesis, but it can also benefit from occasional feedings of small amounts of phytoplankton or other planktonic foods. It's important to avoid overfeeding, as excess food can lead to poor water quality and negatively impact the health of the coral.

  4. Placement: Pulsing Xenia Coral can be placed in a variety of locations within the tank, but it's important to avoid placing it too close to other corals that may be harmed by its pulsing movements. It's also important to ensure that the coral has enough space to grow and expand without crowding other inhabitants in the tank.

Can I expect the coral I see online to match what I receive in my order?

Shopping for live coral for sale online can be a source of worry for reef hobbyists, who can never be entirely sure what will arrive in the mail. Will it resemble the coral they saw online? While there is no substitute for an in-person viewing of the coral, we offer What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG) corals to alleviate concerns. Our WYSIWYG corals allow you to preview the actual coral fragment or colony before making a purchase. We take pride in photographing all our corals under Ecotech Radion G5 LED Light fixtures. We use professional-grade Full Frame DSLR cameras and lenses to capture the highest quality representation of the coral. We also provide multiple photos of the coral under different light spectrums, including full spectrum (white light) and heavy blue spectrum. We also offer size approximations for every coral in centimeters. This measurement is taken when the coral is fully expanded, providing you with a better understanding of the amount of space the coral will occupy in your aquarium.
