    Hi, I need some help with my green bubble tip anemone. I have had it for about 6 weeks now and i thought it was doing ok, it opens up nice and big and my clown has started hosting it, I target feed it once a week and it seem ok, but over the last week I have noticed that maybe once during the day it Shrivels up very small and looks like its mouth open. And today it was doing it again but this time it looked like something coming from it’s mouth. Any help would be very greatful

    I haven’t noticed that it’s split but I was thinking about that. When it’s deflated so to say it does look like it’s foot is largely spread out over a wide space. When it splits does it just split into 2 or can it multiple split?

    I have a giant bye colour nem and keep thinking it's going to split but keeps growing in stead!! Although I do love this one and have a few but this is the best one to date beautiful colours and my clown started to make it a home.

    First one it has had to get rid of first few nems as was not happy in my tank was not mature enough but now all good [​IMG]

    So where i have drawn my circles looks like too feet rather than one normally there would not be a clear gap between them.

    Also I have drawn a line which to me looks like the separation between two nems I maybe wrong but that is what it looks like to me.

    I would keep an eye on it but remember what I said in my last reply it could turn into two healthy nems or one side could be dieing that's why its splitting to save half [​IMG]

    Normally they only split into two nems at a time sometimes more but it's rare to see it happen
