Rbt!

Went to my lfs three days ago and purchased a small rbt. Got home from work today to find two rbts in my tank. Good or bad?

Rbta some times split. It can sometimes be induced by stress other times they just do it when they get to big.

P.s. with the price they cost as long as they both live I say it's good.

I think the kid at the lfs didn't know what he was doing. I think they were manually split After better examination the one on top is healed but the one on bottom is not closed all the way yet. No mouth still half circle. Fingers crossed

They heal very quick before you can tell.

They were stressed to the point they kicked into survival mode. It wasn't natural. And they do circle back around very quickly. I cut anemones up(frag) to sell and trade. Within 30mins after I slice them in two, they are typically fully rounded starting the healing process. It takes about two weeks for the mouth to be 100% healed.
