BTA!!!

my BTA split!!!!!!! i am beyond excited!!! it had been looking just terrible for the past few days, and i was thinking, oh no... looks like the end of the line for mr anemone. but today i came home from work and LOW AND BEHOLD: 2 BTA's!!

this is a great christmas present. i feel like a good anemone mother.

should i attempt to feed them today? the original hadnt accepted food for like a week before this incident, so im guessing they are hungry... or should i just leave them alone for a day or so to adjust?

WOOHOO!!!

I think I read somewhere that it takes a couple (3?) weeks before they will eat. It takes that long for a new mouth to form. Congrats on your new addition.

Hey thats way cool, I am hoping mine splits too because a friend of mine is looking for an anemone and I think he'll have greater chances with one thats tank raised. My other friend had hers split and I actually got to see it while it was happening. Very cool to watch!

Mine split a couple months ago and they didn't have a mouth to eat for 2 to 3 weeks. I now feed them a silver side each once a week and they seems to be flourishing.
