GOOD JOB!
Im glad someone put up a video lol
ive fragged a few nems my self and all grew up fine, i think RC supports natural splitting, which doesnt make a difference since nems dont have a CNS...

thx faisal, I totally agree, not much difference than fragging any of our other corals.. none of which have a central nervous system.

I just fragged mine tonight...it is actually really easy, and really amazing how they pinch together and bubble up again like nothing happened.

yeah, I was very impressed with how quickly both were open. I will definitely do this again and again.

I can't help but think that fragging them also makes them even more hardy similar to aquacultured corals.

Here are the two I fragged in this thread...they are pretty much healed now.


I touched this one right before the pic so it would close and I could capture the cut area that is now healed:




and the other..

Hi, I am new so I hope you don't mind my questions.

How would the anenome normaly reproduce in the wild?

You refered to "bubble" as her, how could you tell?

How long will it take for the little ones to equal the same size as the one you cut?

Thank you

Thanks for making a very descriptive video. I'll make sure to refer back to it whenever I start fragging my nems.

Great video. It is weird, I have had some anemones that are beyond massive and never split naturally and then some that split every time they get bigger than 5 inches. It is easy to split them and is a fun process. I have done it similarly to how you did, but also on accident by dropping a rock on one...

Thanks for the video!

Question: I've never had nems but dont they attach firmly to the substrate? If so, how do you remove them to perform "surgery"?

Change the flow in your tank and when they are on the move scoop them up. Sometimes I will wait weeks to catch one on the move. When they hit glass or acrylic just slide an ID or credit card under them slowly to get them off.

Yeah, sometimes they just don't split. You would need for it to move around so you can pull it out to frag.

Nice job, pictures, and information will be a nice reference for hobbiest wishing to do the same
There should be a rule that hobbiest input on a thread should at least be a full sentence...lol You spend hours doing/building something then share it with others and they only have time to write three words and ones misspelled....what are you going to do life on the forums

Keep up the sharing!
