some anemones produce baby anemones other repopulate by splitting, i was told at the pet store to feed it once a week, and if you have clowns, you didn;t need to feed, them, well they are usually pretty informative, but in this case they are wrong, my anemone seemed hungry , was feeding about once every three days, now i feed it every other day, mine split, and now they are just as big as when i bought it, if it they split again, i will probably need to get rid of a couple.today i fed my fish and my clown had a big wadd of food in his mouth, he spit it out into my anemone and the food was gone in a matter of seconds

Thank you all! My water quality is good and I target feed him every other day, so he must just prefer to be that shape. Will be interesting to see if it splits because he has almost doubled in size.

Nems do not require that much feeding and you could be overdoing it. In the wild nems do not eat the prepared meaty food often that we tend to give them. Just a thought. Many people go without feeding nems at all, especially of clowns are hosting since they feed the nem when they are fed.

I will cut down on feeding him to once a week and see if he bubbles up again

Good idea. A lot of people have had nems for 5+ years never feeding them with no problems on this site.
