I probably should have said split instead of reproduce.
With the exception of BTA's, I would disagree on that as well. If you ever find the article I would appreciate reading it. Anemones in general will split as a response to outward stress, a last ditch effort at survival if you will. Reproduction is this manner is not always a good sign. Again except for BTA's, a majority of (hosting) anemone species reproduce sexually or through the production of "daughter" clones. Much smaller versions of the original but not a split.

Steve, as always, your knowledge is amazing! I hadn't thought about the possible destructive collection practices of man. That is quite possibly the greatest contributing factor to the decrease in anemone population where clowns are over collected.

Thank you for your knowledgeable input.
