sea anemone laceration :(

Last night my BTA overstretched himself and a part of his base was lacerated. I released the other end that was attached to a rock and he curled. I waited I thought he's gonna die, until now he's still surviving though he looks weak. Hope he'll survive
He didn't grab the table shrimp that I offered him this morning...will I continue to monitor him?

Overstretched?

Just fyi if the foot is damaged 99% of the time the nem will not survive. Keep an eye so it doesnt nuke your tank.

the other end of the foot was at the bottom and the other end was on the opposite rock near the surface, and the one's on the bottom gave in...will I isolate him? what's your suggestion? he's still on the rock and color didn't change...still hosting the 2 clownfish..

when they split do they become two? that didn't happened with him. The part of the foot which was connected to the base was almost completely cut, I just released it from the bottom thinking he can still recover....if the nem gets injured like this will they instantly die? as what I've said it's been 24 hours now.

IME they will die within the first day after the injury. Maybe yours will survive. Good luck!

Oh my, hopefully, thanks...he's been a survivor, I placed him in when my tank was still a week old, and he'll be turning one month on the 3rd of this month..

I think itll survive. Ive seen youtube videos where people intentionally slice their BTAs to clone them. I had one that deflated to a few days before it died and yours still looks way better than mine did.

I've seen that, too. They cut the nem in half and they survived, that was actually my inspiration for this. I know he's injured and healing because he stayed on that rock which he usually stay below that where he can spread himself to get full benefit of the light and he didn't grab the slice of shrimp and it was time for him to be fed..hopefully he'll survive, I know he's really healthy and he's hosting both of my percula..
