Xenia Fuge?


Supporting Member
PIcked up some pulsing xenias at California Reef yesterday on impulse... was planning to put it in my work tank but have a change of heart.

Before tossing those things into my pest tank, I got to thinking about putting it in my one of my fuges and turning it into a display fuge. Anyone ever set up a xenia powered fuge before? pros/cons?

The Xenia might actually pull particulates out, unlike chaeto.
Hard to say if they really grow fast enough for meaningful export though.
And yes, you need to rip them regularly out to actually achieve that, so you would probably want to grow them on a mesh or something.
