BTA split twice in a month?

My rose anemone split twice in a month, should I be concerned? Ive heard two sides to the story; that anemone's splitting is normal, but also that that their splitting is a sign of stress. Advice?

Normal. Bta's can and do split very fast when given good parameters. The only thing i woukd be concerned with is what your going to do with that many BTA's if it keeps that rate up lol.

Such great news. I woke up this morning and noticed that my gbta split. I was stressed out originally, but after reading a few threads I'm much more relieved.
