    Nutrient exporting corals

    What are some good nutrient exporting corals that don't need MH?

    I have over 15 large stalks of xenia in my refugium....even with the macro overcorwding at times when I'm too lazy to cut it back, it still grows wild...

    The only thing two reef keepers will agree on, is what the third reef keeper is doing wrong!

    I thought xenia needed high lighting. I'm currently running on 2 NO and an actinic.
    What calcium demands do they have? Or any other specific needs?

    My refugium is under 2 normal output flourescents. Both are the powerglow bulbs. The refugium has the same calcium level as the main tank...usually 400-420. They grow fine under that. It's just the plain old pulsing xenia.

    what do you feed them, or do they filter the water?

    Filter feeders. Considered an easy coral to keep.
