I've read so much on either side of the equation, that my head is spinning.
I have a BTA that has been in my tank for about 2 months. He found his spot and was happy and growing with nice bubble tips. So I see him start to move his foot out from under the cave and on top of the LW and figured he was getting wanderlust and would find a new home. Came home after a few hours and noticed that I had 2 anemones now.
Neat, I thought. One of the clones moved back to the original spot and another moved to the other side of the same small peice of LR
and stayed put.
The as usual when something new happens in my tank I run a search here and find all sorts of people saying splitting is bad and caused by poor water or stress
, and others congratulating people on their splits. So I am trying to find out what is going on.
If he split to increase his chances of survival in a poor spot, then why did one of them settle back in the original spot and the other settle about 6 to 8 in away? Any ideas if this is good or bad?
I do 20% weekly PWC
's with Distilled water (did one last Sunday and split happened Saturday--two days ago).
Temp 76 - 78
This hobby drives me loopy sometimes.
