Yeah, you ALK levels are low. Btw I am guessing that is your alk in ppm?

alkalinity of 2.9 to 4.0 meq/L (8 to 11 dKH)

To convert KH to meq/L:KH x .36 = meq/L
To convert meq/L to KH:meq/L x 2.8 = KH
To convert ppm to KH: ppm / 17.86 = KH
To convert KH to ppm:KH x 17.86 = ppm
To convert meq/L to ppm:meq/L x 50 = ppm
To convert ppm to meq/L: ppm / 50 = meq/L

if your xenia is not doing well I will bet that your PH is below 8.0. You never post your PH reading so check that and if it's below 8 raise it up slowly.
