I wanted to ask a question about my xena's..

 

When I got them many heads on them and they where pulsing fast...

Then after a week they are long stalks and have nubs on the stalks, not that many heads and they also are pulsing slowly..

wood...... do you have any temp issues? How do you control them... I am thinking about getting a micro chiller

 

 

 

Last year when I had the tank I did not have to much in it so I would just freeze 2 or 3 bottles of water. When the water would get to 85 I would put in a bottle and the temps would cool down but thats when I had a closed top. This year I am going to be buying a chiller. I really don't want to be going crazy making frozen bottle and dumping them in.

 

Also how is the tank doing, anything new in the tank.

Your tank is beautiful! I love your Ric garden, did you buy them locally or order them?

 

Watch your pH, that may be making the Xenia angry, they hate pH swings ;)

 

Keep it up! :)

Thanks for the nice comment.

I ordered them on line from www.coralfanatics.com

 

I moved the Xenia to the back wall and for some reason they are getting better. I guess they like very low flow.

how would you hook up a chiller?

 

 

I think you just hook one tube to pump and other to the outlet...

No and yes about the top, I have a sunpod but I made a glass top to fit over the top of the tank.

Nice tank Hollywood. I really like your Zoas and Rics! It sucks that you have had so many unwelcome critters get in there. Good luck with that!
