Mini nem splitting

Recommended Posts

Lalani

Oh dear.. I hope I put this in the correct forum, because I don't feel like Weets banninnating me again.... :scarry:

 

Hehe, but anyways, I noticed one of my mini nems split today and took pics.... I'm such a nerd, but thought it was cool... All in all, it took maybe an hour for the split to happen.

Yeah, I know, the algae is a disgrace. :(

It's only one little patch, but I've been too lazy to yank it out.. blah.

Yeah sorry, guess it didn't make sense without the comma, eh? :)

 

 

 

Actually, I completely didn't want one (like the whole Acan thing a few years back - fad corals ftl) but after seeing more of them I wouldn't be aversed to a few.

 

Honestly I've paid no attention to their care needs either. Lighting? Flow? I dunno. :huh:

Yup. :lol:

 

I was the same as you, didn't really see anything special about the minis, but decided to give them a try when I saw Weets had some for sell. As soon as I opened the bags and saw them, I fell in love though. They are downright adorable. :wub:

 

According to Weets and Daniel, they really don't have any needs at all. They'll do just fine in any type of lighting and will split regularly. If you feed them, they will split more quickly. Not sure about flow, but I have them in a low-medium flow spot right now and they seem happy.

That's sweet.

 

Honestly, I was about to ask you if, in the future, you might frag that algae for me. I'm setting up seahorse tanks (already have one going) and that ferny-feathery-goodness would look HAWT turfing over some rock.

You'd think, since they split so often, they wouldn't be impossible to find. Lame. Congrats, any way.

It looks like they divorced. By the way, that is the neatest thing I have ever seen. So glad you captured it all for us to enjoy.
