    Bubbletips sometimes split under stress. Are your parameters all in check?

    A splitting anemone will not affect the water parameters.

    Everything was in check before/during/after the split. As marius said, a splitting anemone wont/shouldnt effect your water.

    Are the two anemones walking around the tank? They may have come into contact with the corals and this has caused them to close up?

    My rose bubble tip split after I got back from holiday, my sitter didn't follow my instructions to the tee, both "offspring" wandered the tank and stung a few zoas.

    So, I have two smallish bubble tips that have hidden under overhangs of rocks to get away from my LEDs, since I moved them from my RSM, and slowly they are coming back out.

    If they are on the move it means that they are not happy and the split was most likely stress induced. You need to find out what was causing the stress. How long have you had them in the tank?

    Nennies tend to split when they are moved between tanks. Not always but it does happen. Try and find a rock with some nice holes where they can hide their feet.

    Had it for just under a year.
    There was no noticeable effect on the corals.
