Xenia update

I've done countless water changes over the last few weeks to dilute my nitrate levels after removing my Bio-wheels. I can't tell what my nitrate level is now because the color for 5ppm and 10ppm look identical. What I can tell you is that my Xenia look a whole lot better. They are growing, the polyps are full and they are pulsing like crazy. And perhaps most importantly there is a little baby Xenia between mom and dad. This baby is growing where the connecting piece had stretched out between the main coral and the one that branched off. You can see it in the picture below.
