There is a risk of it overruning some corals, though I believe xenia don't sting other corals, so the coral it is near usually fights it off.

Very true... It has been reported that xenia can cause problems if it comes in contact with some SPS spp. However, in terms of over running LPS or softies, there is little to no chance. Xenia will however block out light as it over crowds softies... So if they are light intensive they can be starved of light. LPS will generally sting your xenia if it gets too close.
