Anenome

I have had my anenome for about 8 months and 3 weeks ago it split giving me two...which was great but i need to know if there is anything i need to do to keep the smaller of the two alive....it seems to not be as healthy, it wont stand erect(sorry for use of words, couldnt think of another way to say it).

This is a fairly common problem with splits. The anemone will split and one half will not survive. I don't generally advocate target feeding anemones but it may help in this situation.

I have read that heavy target feeding can makeup for lost energy in anemones, especially if he isn't getting enough light.

I would agree with Jester in this matter. A clown fish would definitely assist in providing nutrients two both of them.

clowns will not necessarily help provide nutrients. Not all clowns host anemone, or will choose to host the wrong one.

Lando, I'm curious as to why you don't advocate target feeding of anemones?
