    I've had this RBTA for several months now and yesterday I realized it had split. I don't know when it happen but its fully recover. Its that a good sign or bad?

    Congrats on the split! Your conditions must be good if your having things split and multiply.

    Well yeah. lol I notice it because I turned off the power-heads to feed them and when I turn the power-heads back on it moved the anemone and I saw there were two instead of one. lol

    lol, very true. I was just saying that you can kind of tell that it had split in the middle by looking at the picture. :D

    There are 2 reasons that anemones split.They either feel the urge to propagate or are stressed and are uping the chances of survival.
    You can tell from the pic that is one happy anemone.So no worries there.:D
    Congratulations.

    +1 Yote. Splitting can be a good and a bad thing. Your anemone looks great!
