for those curious about trying this at home beware that fragging anenomes in a display tank can release nematocyst's that can and have killed prized collections of fish.

neman, have you considered the low light/heavy feeding/waterchange way of splitting BTA'S, read it somewhere on the net years ago a guy doing it with rose BTAS

this is not the article i was looking for but its out there somewhere.......

yes i have water on hand and i know of the feeding required.

i am on a forum where Anthony Calfo an authourity on subject is a member and i have read a lot of info about it.my tank have no livestock except anemone no liverock fish or anything else theyre setup as anemone tank only.
in regards to lighting what culd be more better then natural light. which they receive as they are setup in a shed using poly carbonate roofing so that the light gets in. its basically a mini glass house

i can vouch for this. an anenome died (not fragged) in my tank while in my parents care. during a water change, the dead anenome was stired up (dad did not realise it was missing in LR). white water. very dead fish. including flame angel, yellow tang, gold headed gobie, melanopus clown pair, and assorted damsels. all in the space of about 5 mins so i was told.

I'm surprised you can find homes for all the BTA's, I'm flat out out giving the ones away that have split from my main anenome. I usually end up chucking them out.

with all the horror stories with anenomes, i wonder

i had a BTA go south in a 65L tank, get this, during a blackout, for 5 hours the tank was blacked out, not sure how long it was dead for as i was out of town, drove home

siphoned, it out, did a water change, didnt lose a single fish or coral

if that doesnt make me lucky i dont know what does

i sot of feel that if chemical warefare between different corals /anemones ocurrs
that where the problem of a tank crash occurs.
not so much as one type of coral or anemone releasing gametes into the water .

i have fragged my carpets again today in the tank i just cut them in half the put them back in the tank . so i now have about 6 child fist sized carpets
