yay! three ways... that never happen to me... mine start with the figure 8th for a few hours- but once they started to actually cut through, the whole process is 10 minutes... can only talk from my experience. the pic is a bit big cant tell... let me know, sometimes they morph and they twist, they are moving, but nothing happens. though I heard about someone else having they BTA splitted in 3 before...

This morning the split size is about 1 cm (1/2") bigger than last night. This is taking longer than I anticipated. This takes longer than a labour. :) I am wandering if she wants an epidural.:D
When she is done splitting, do I have to dip them, or they don't require it, since everything occurred naturally?

Bta

I bought a couple of BTAs from grandma a few months ago. I belive it was last week that one split. At first it goes from being nice and round to long and thin.

The bta will stretch like an elastic band and then break off after about 10 minutes like stated by grandma.

Ohhhhhhhhhh

Ohhhhhhhhhhhh, I just saw a picture of your anemone ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Will you be selling the split ?

Do you have another picture and perhaps Leti can comment. Mine went from being oval to elongated and I thought it was sick at first. Then it WILL STRETCH LIKE AN ELASTIC band and after ten minutes or so will become two.

There shouldn't be a need to change anything in your display to accommodate the split. It will happen naturally and the split ends will heal over a short period of time. Good luck.

Hi Claud,

There is no need to dip them or anything. I am surprised this is taking so long. Your nem must be a different species than mine..... shouldnt be more than a couple of hours tops...
no need of powerheads off, but when they split, they will walk a bit, if the powerheads are too close to the anemone level, go ahead and turn off the powerheads so they can find a place. I did turn them off when i got my new RBTa and she certaintly appreciated. I dont turn of the PH for my GBTA because they are tough bastards, never die ;)

I got some interesting info from another source, and apparently there are some anemones that start splitting through the mouth and stop in the middle to make two mouths and then continue with the split. Interesting, no?

Are you selling?

So cool, I wish mine would split. If you are going to sell I would definitely be interested!
I want to have an anemone only tank :)
