i'll be looking at a cuc for my 29g soon. i tried putting a small xenia frag in my 14g and the hermits decimated it, caught 'em red handed.

i'm planning on my 29g being a reef and i don't want anything that's gonna make a meal out of the frags i will eventually be getting.

can i do a cuc w/o hermits?

Yep, but something tells me your xenia was in ill health and they were doing there job. Same thing happened to me from stress of shipping. I have 2 types of pulsing xenias now and the same hermits that at my other ones leave them alone.

LOL! yeah, they are. two of my six have gone on to bigger and better shells and they look SO clumsy because they are bumping into things and each other.

the xenia was seemingly healthy, pulsing away and happy as a clam. it had only been in my tank for a few days. it was fine that morning, when i got home from work it was gone. poof! little jerks, indeed!!
