excellent profile, a question about the breeding, like some other corals, are anemones also able to be cut apart by hand? in other words something like artificial reproduction?
thanks for the kind words. cutting corals and propagating them is called "fragging" or fragmenting (a new term that i learned just a few weeks ag). it won't work with anemones. the reason being that they have a central stomach and mouth. cutting it apart would just destroy it (at least as far as i know). you have to wait until the anemone "splits". you CAN frag other cnidarians like zoanthids as they grow in colonies.yeayea123 said:excellent profile, a question about the breeding, like some other corals, are anemones also able to be cut apart by hand? in other words something like artificial reproduction?
thanks for the compliment. the 14wpg would depend on what type of lighting and how big of a tank. it is my opinion that they CAN thrive with normal output fluorescent lights. but there needs to be a strict feeding regimin that is high in all the right nutrients. also, keep in mind that low lighting will also bleach the anemone. while it may not look the healthiest, it is possible to have a happy anemone (in my opinion.). this opinion is shared by very few and i'm in the process of an experiment that will test the theory of anemones needing super lighting. check the sw section for more info.Tibs said:nice profile hyphen
EDIT: BTW would 14wpg be enough for one of those???
