    What in hell is this

    I came home to find some kind of blisters on my Xenias.
    Can somebody tell me what's wrong.
    Or,...maybe they are just budding?
    I'm running 250W MH + egg crate over 30g for 3.5hours a day.
    Bulb is 7" from water level.
    10 day water change due in 2 days.
    candycane, leather finger and green star polip are doing OK.
    What could it be?
    I'll turn the light off for the day.
    Please, someone, HELP.

    Maybe in the second piture looks like it's budding, but in the first one looks like buble coral. Looks like blisters on it.

    xenia does that when its looking for anpother rock to attache to, meaning it wants to move. If you were to put a rock touching or right beside those lumps it would attache to it within a day or two. Try it!

    I know that, but on one of then doesn't look normal.
    It usualy have one bud per side, let's say.
    This one looks like 10-12 blisters/bubbles (almost see-through) on same spot.

    My Xenia does the exact same thing.. Freaked me out a little bit at first too.. Thought it was a water quality issue but testing showed it wasn't.. My Xenia is still fine. Actually a little too fine.. This stuff grows super-fast!
