    with the split on their own it fine, some people that split them they do some type of a dip to heal the open wound

    I know its a good thing, although I thought I had also read that sometimes they split so if one is sick one can survive? It doesnt look AT ALL sick, just random info there

    It could be good or bad. It looks good and healthy but it doesn't look split. It looks like it is picking a different hole to come out of.

    My GBTAs split on a regular basis. I would hold off feeding till it heals, about 2-3 weeks.
