Well actually it could be good or bad news. RBTAs/BTAs will split for a bunch of different reasons (yes Sparky a pair of scissors will do the trick too). Some people get them to split by feeding them, others by changing water temps on them. They will also split as a sign of water issues, as a stress related action.

Most likely it is a good thing and that is very cool. As Sparky mentioned mine has looked like it was going to split for a long time now but has yet to do so.

Well The other day it got was caught in the pump It made it's way up to it and thought he could go for a ride threw some waves... but I caught him just in time... I believe it may have been from stress.... It got cut up a little bit. But it looks happy now both of them nothing out of the ordinary that I can see....
