What corals will readily propagate like Pulsing Xenia (Xenia umbellata) in a marine tank? The tank is 29 gallons, has about 6 watts per gallon, & only 2 fish; a clownfish & a wrasse. Thanks

Green Star Polyps, zoanthids, mushrooms, xenias. These won't necessarily propagate like xenia, except for the GSP, but all are very easy to grow. What type of lighting do you have WPG doesn't tell a whole lot, light intensity is more important. 100 watts of flourescent light is very different than 100 watts of power compact light, which is very different than 100 watts of T-5 lighting etc.

Like Halelorf said Green Star Polyps, Mushrooms, and some zoa varieties (not all of them) probably grow the fastest. Some people consider these corals (along with xenia) borderline pests.

halelorf nailed it
