I may try this just so I don't have to worry about overflow issues. Thanks!

Well I've only seen the lieutenant tang once since I put him back in. In getting worried about him . He is really stressed and his coloration shows it. He is normally almost white but today he is jet black. He ate a little bit but is sticking to all the caves right now

Seems to be the day for things happening in my tank! Came back after an hour or so and my anemone split. It's been very happy lately too- so I'm not sure why.





Now I'll spend the next few hours watching for movement in case I need to move corals (if I even can so many have grown over the rock).

I thought they split when they were happy?

I made some for my overflows out of black opaque 1/8" acrylic. Work at a cabinet shop, so it helps. I did it to block light to the overflow box, was getting a lot of algea I couldn't get to, and to stop snails and such from ending up in my plumbing, causing a jam. Was really easy. Template your shape , cut it with a hacksaw, and sand it smooth. I actually had to make my overflow boxes out of the same material. I bought a Marineland 180 that was stripped off CL, no filtration at all. But what a steal!! Good luck!

I've read that they only do it when stressed

Do only certain Nems split? My Sebae is about 18" across, 6+ years old and I wish it would split! I could get rid of both and get a nice RBTA or GBTA.

I think google would be our best friend in this situation, or our fellow AA members to settle this. Im curious to learn more as to why anenomes split, since i would like to own one some day.

I have read and heard that they can split when happy AND also when stressed. I don't think there is a definitive way to be sure unless you have issues with them already.

They look good and healthy though so maybe they were so happy they just had to replicate! lol

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
