My bubble tip split! Good or bad?

Hello! Well my gbta split today and I'm happy for the fact that I have two now but is this good or did something bother it and make it split for some type of protection? Another silly question is, what do I do now? Lol I mean I now have two gbta and one rbta. Should I pull one of the greens out to sell or whatever or just leave everyone in there?

It's a good and a bad thing. They are not supposed to split, however if it does you get the benefit of having two now. It's not something you did wrong. The choice is yours. You can keep it in your tank if you'd like, but since you started with one anyway, IMO i'd sell it or maybe see if your lfs would basically give you a credit so you can swap it for something you didn't have before.

Usually they would split due to stress or overfed. I wouldn't worry too much as long as it heals nice and has good coloration. Are both fully open and look okay? You should also post up your paramaters so maybe someone more experienced can review your results and chime in for better advice.

Ok. Well anemone still split from stress and I would advise looking/thinking about what it could be. It is usually a shift in parameters or lighting.

Well good luck with that. I hope mine never splits so I don't have any anemones roaming over my corals.
