Another Anemone added!!Splitting pic?

Hey guys. Picked up 2 more RBTA's for my small tank. Was wondering if they need moderate to strong water flow? I put a small powerhead in the corner of the tank facing the front having the current disperse throughout the tank. Is this okay? Oh and another thing, not quite clear on a question I asked earlier about lighting but Should I run a night light or moonlight to keep somekind of lighting in the tank for the anemones? When I wake up in the morning and turn the lights on the look a bit withery. TIA

i'd worry if they didnt look withered. sounds totally normal. a moon light isnt strong enough to provide nutrients for the anemone anyhow. plus...its my belief that fish and corals alike need night

Why do you have a Naso, and Regal, and racoon in a 55 gal? Good luck with that, be careful with the PH or they can get into its intake.

Is it a bad idea to have those fish in the same tank? What is a regal? All the fish are juveniles and when they get big they will eventually go into my 180g. My anemones are in a small tank with 1 maroon clown. I'm still new to this. What should I watch out for? TIA

Great news 8) Regal tang, also known as hippo and pacific blue tang. Assuming you have good lighting for those anemones, just keep them well fed with shrimp or silversides. Some people feed daily, which is what I would do. Just cover up intakes with some pre filter, and clean them regularly. If they wander to close to an intake they go right into it and thats usually the end of them.

A 15 gallon Eclipse System 12. I think its 15 maybe 20. It comes with PC lights installed. I think the lighting is just right. The anemones are at the middle of the tank. When I put them in, they were at the top, but after adjusting themselves they moved to the middle, midway to the top.

The only problem I see is that BTA's can and will get 8-10" across pretty quickly. That will pack a 15g pretty tightly. Just be ready for Plan B as they grow.

Is my anemone splitting? If so, do I still feed it or should I wait till they are ready?
