Aquacultured Pulsing Blue Xenia Coral


Our aquacultured pulsing blue xenia is best described as steel blue in color. The short branches are blue and the pulsing heads are steel blue to silver. You get at one or two starter stalks growing on a frag plug. This soft coral is easy to keep and thrives in most tanks.

Aquacultured Xenia are hardier than wild-caught species and tend to reproduce more quickly. They require a medium to high light level combined with a medium to strong water movement within the aquarium.

Xenia does not possess any apparent stinging capability and will not bother other corals, but can tend to grow over and shadow its neighbors.  When water conditions are right Xenia can reproduce by division at an very fast rate and may require frequent pruning to keep it from crowding out other corals.

Xenia contain the symbiotic algae zooxanthellae from which they receive their nutritional requirements and do not need any additional feeding.

Good afternoon, Both Berghia arrived alive and well. I did the drip acclimation, and I watched them go into the rock formation. Thank you, Paul
