    i'd never put those small anemonies again.. they are green.. tiny and take over a tank in a heart beat.... not apthesia.. but just about the same size.

    sea apple, (stressed released poisons)
    codylactus, (moves around and sting corals, eat fish, get sucked up pumps and dies)
    camel shrimp (chea but not reef safe)
    gonipora (majority of the time just wastes away)
    seapen (boring)
    feather star (doesn't live long in captivity)
    sponges (hit or miss when it coms to staying alive, not particlarily cool anyway)

    On regards to your question!!!!!!!
    will never put any type of anemone......
    4 times ......4 times they have died.
    No Frag spawn.........once it goes in my tank.......
    they diflate and eventually desintegrate.
    No hammer Corals.
    No ganioporas.
    Pulsing Xenia.
    Any brain coral.......
    I guess my tank is mainly softies........
    they sure do well........
    any sps or lps.......No luck at all.

    Why do you not like Xenia, is it because they take over or because they sometimes crash?
