This is another classic reef coral. Red Sea Xenia, also known as Pom Pom Xenia, has pinkish tan and white polyps with eight tentacles.  Unlike other Xenia corals it grows on very compact stalks that pulse rapidly.  It will encrust over just about any non-living surface in the aquarium and makes quite a spectacular display. It often pulse but they can stop pulsing and start back up again. Pom Pom Xenia is a soft coral species.

It is important to give corals their own space in the aquarium. We recommend giving them at least 2-3+ inches of their own space so they do not sting or irritate other corals. This will also give them room to grow in the aquarium.

This coral variety is peaceful and considered safe with our larger species (not Dwarf seahorses) of seahorses. 

Like our captive bred seahorses, we recommend using RODI water when mixing your saltwater. Corals can be sensitive to improper water quality. We recommend the same water parameters we do for our captive bred seahorses and fish.

Please note: Coral color and appearance varies. Differences in light, glass, water parameters, and many other factors can influence how a coral appears so it may appear different in your aquarium. Many coral species will "close up" during shipping and can take a day or up to a week or more to open. This is normal and expected when you receive them.
