    hi Guys as most of u know my RBTA split a week ago
    well they only moved 1st time last mite and have not moved since *( i thinkit a good sign )
    well for those of us that have experience with this in our tanks , wats the survival rate of both ? and how do u tell the the parent from the baby ?
    well in mys case one is smaller than the other !
    guys your comments would go along way not only for me but for generations to came
    thanks
    PS make sure we all are warm in this cold weather , and please keep a check on your temps in your tanks :thumbup:

    The way I understand its not really a parent and a baby thats a different form of reproduction.
    When they split its more like fragging a coral.

    Mine split recently and has been moving around a bit looking for a spot where its happy.
    Its a bit of a pain as it has quite a bad sting.

    How about a picture of your anemone.;)

    This type of reproduction does not produce a 'parent and a baby' that would mean it gave birth.
    It split so i guess you could call it a parent colony if you really wanted to, like a frag from a coral.
    They are however identical as it comes from the same organism
    So if the first one survives (which I assume it is as they do not generally split unless they are happy)then both should survive

    Reefhead I have to disagree with that as mine split as a direct result of stress, and I have also heard of other people experiencing the same thing.

    I have heard of people putting them in and within a few days they split, that is due to stress but in general if they split after being in a system for a while it is cause they are happy and simply reproducing
    A split from stress is a due to trying to survive and a different situation actually
    So yes I agree they do split when stressed but this split is different to when they split if they are happy
    So if they split because they are happy the second one should survive as well as the first one did (this is what i ment in response to the question asked, yes i guess I did assume that his was happy. Mainly because a stressed anemone is more likely to die then to split)
    Hope any of this makes sense

    Hard to see in such a small pic, but they look fine.
    How are your parameters doing?
