That is interesting. I personally have never had a problem with my anemones, especially these two. These two have yet to split for me. But i have about 20 rockflowers and 3 RBTA's now. Started with 1 rock flower.I always had a tougher time keeping green ones. Throughout the years, I burned through several green ones. IME, rainbows are pretty indestructible, but weirdly enough, the green ones were the hardest! I thought it was just me. Then, I went to a newer LFS, and the owner was saying him too--he had the toughest time keeping green BTA's. He had some established ones that were bulletproof (he burned through so many before he could find this particular "line" haha) Anyways, I was skeptical, thinking he just wanted to sell me livestock, but hey, I was in a ready-to-be-tricked mood, and gave it a try. It worked! For some reason, this particular green BTA WAS bulletproof! I kept it for 4 years before I sold it and its clones. Happy, healthy, split occasionally. When I started selling the clones locally, reefers would be excited to try it. They would tell me that they, too, had the toughest time w/GREEN BTA's, and they had no idea why! LOL! As far as I know, the clones I sold did great .
Perhaps it was just chemical warfare all along? Perhaps this particular "strain" was able to get along w/my shermans/rainbows and black widows, and other green BTA's just couldn't win? Who knows!
Oh, and it was just a regular, run-of-the-mill green BTA. No speckles/sparkles/purple/orange tips or anything crazy.
