    Anemone Split

    So... I've been waiting for this for a while... and I thought it was looking funny so I turned off the powerhead to take a better look and lo and behold my Anemone Split...

    I was expecting it to move around, go hide, do something weird when it was going to split but it stayed exactly where it was the whole time...

    Now how do I get one off of the rock so I can sell it... or am I stuck with them like that if and until one decides to move?

    The clown's face cracks me up hehe

    From what I know and have been told the safest way is to gently rub/massage the foot of one and it will start to release without any tearing or damage. If the foot is visible and open you could also take a bag of ice I think and rub the bottom and it will begin to let go but make sure to only place for a short time before giving it a quick break. Hope I kind of helped:p good luck:) (you could always sell me it;p)

    Ryan your tank is too small and you don't have a light for it yet hehe. Get a 30g, get a light and you can have it :) I would even think a 20g would do if you had the right flow but I"m not expert.... I also read about putting a powerhead on it until it left... I don't want the other one to move tho... I'm going to give it a few more days, it was not split when I did my feeding video a few days ago so making sure that it's all healed up nicely :)

    Cool. I'd be excited to see that if it was mine. To me, it says you are doing things right.

    Keep me in mind if/when you sell. Click here to enlarge

    I didn't see anything happen... I thought stuff was going to be obvious but I just looked last night and thought it looks weird... and then this morning I had to go see closer.... it came from an Anemone that splits all of the time so I figured it was just a matter of time, they are clones so I assume that they all act the same...

    Yes Rusty, that is one way that they propagate. Keeping Anemone's in the aquarium is a bit of a controversial debate, considering that they split and create 2 duplicates of the original they can, in theory, live forever.... they don't live that long in the aquarium... mine is a split so it wasn't taken directly out of the ocean... not that I have anything against that... I just got it at a good price so I got it... but the good part about splits usually do better in the aquarium :)

    I'll post it when it's ready... if I can get it off that rock.... what lights on your bigger tank? They need to do photosynthesis to live...
