Watch it, I pulled mine off and it's growing back, it'll spread everywhere.
I have one stalk I kept but I keep it on rubble off the main aquascape .

You need to keep that away from any rock or other surface in which it can grow on. It will spread quickly and all over the place, glass, rocks, overflows.

Careful with that too... some people don't want to trade them . Guys at my club give them away. Could be different elsewhere but thats just my experience.

If your plan is to incorporate other corals, then pay heed to the advice given above. JMO
Xenia's can and will sting other corals......
