ATL red anemones

  1. so i noticed they have been unhappy for about 2.5 weeks. i couldn't figure out why, water changes, carbon/gfo, filter pad, moving em out of the light, lower flow, higher flow etc. couldn't get it right. i moved em to the tub that has my maxis and over a week period the condition did not improve. one in particular was not happy so i pried it off the rock and noticed it tried to split but the rock was clustered w/ the red nems so it had no where to split

    i pried a few more off and they were all partially split. i went ahead and did it for them. look at what happened :)

    lol cool, I had that happen with a few of my mini nems, 2 feet but not enough room to split.

    I bought a big rock of minis and a handful of maxis the other week. The minis I removed from the rock and several split with in days, and more have split since. Two of the maxi's split as well :)
     
  4. yep, ppl haven't witnessed maxi's splitting but a few of mines split . the minis split frequently. these reds split on me quite a number of times already.

    So what's the secret to churning out maxi clones Gresh? Miracle Gro, Soy Sauce and Oyster Feast? :p

    I wish I knew :( It could just be from the stress of moving tanks?
     
  10. stress will do it :) i've noticed they will crawl into dark areas to do the split

    That is exactly what happened Sam!!
     
  12. i had a few do that for me. it's pretty crazy how they split too. its not the typical split from the middle.. it rips itself unproportionally like 75% and 25% .. the 25% didn't have a mouth.
