spread to 2 other ones.

Perhaps it was stung by the anemone right beside it? As for your question, Not sure what to do.

They Had a lot more room between them when I started the anemone split and has been growing like crazy ever since. The anemone was about the size of the top of a soda can when I got it, now it's about the size of a soccer ball!

ya mines done the same thing, I had no idea how big they can get. I've managed to change my flow so it's moved to the far corner of my tank so I can put coral everywhere else. Mine stung a favia LPS and bleached out a portion in the middle, I moved it away and it grew back. I'm not saying thats gonna happen to yours but maybe they are just bleached and not dead. Do they open and close every day like your other zoa's?

That anemone is not going to do them any good at all. I would remove it.

My clowns love the anemone I don't want to take it away from them, the zoas on the side right next to it look fine. If I notice it is damaging them I will move the rock with the zoas. Last time I moved them they left some stragglers which are spreading.

the anemone is fine and the zoa's will grow where he can't sting them
