Our first Coral

This is called Xenia or Waving Hands Coral because of the pulsing action of the coral. The coral resembles a stalk of broccoli with flowers at the end of the stalks that open and close like grasping hands.

When we got it back from the store, it looked pretty sad, but it has perked up since then. The store owner said as long as the water quality is good, the Xenia will continue to pulse.
