      Thats neat Jon! Do you target feed that guy or does he just grab what floats by?

        Thanks!

        I kinda sorta target feed them. I'll squirt some food in their direction when I'm feeding but then just let them catch the rest out of the current.

                    Here's another picture . And I learned something new about the pulsing motion. It isn't to feed. It is to create water movement. Xenia are found in stiller water so they pulse so they can move the water around them. Kinda cool .
