RBTA stands for Rose Bubble Tip Anemone. They can get fairly large and will split creating clones of themselves... I'm hoping this one will do that so I can trade them for other corals.

It is very happy since I moved the green birds nest out of it's way.

Well I haven't updated in a while so I thought I would do that now. The RBTA continues to do well in my tank it is growing nicely and the color just keeps getting deeper. It is doing what I am told is the beginnings of splitting. Its attached itself in a couple different spots and seems to be pulling away from itself.?!? Anyway I've been taking pics to document it's progress. We will see if that is what's going on or not.

Here is a pic I just took of it this morning.

How about that! I had no idea they reproduced "gremlin style."

They will actually split and create an identical clone. I've only ever seen video of it happening.

Clowns being clowns are just that. It's like leading a horse to water

Well yesterday right as I was leaving for work I looked at the tank and to my amazement my no-bar clown was in the RBTA....I was nearly late for work from standing there watching it. I'm hoping that the other clown will follow his lead...I'll try and get a pic of it. Because of the color of the RBTA and the clown you can barely see the clown when it is in the anemone.
