Bubble Tip Anemone Babies?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone ever had small bubble tips show up in their tank? Does this mean my anemones spawned? There’s a couple on the back side of the rock too.

Anemones split creating babies. It's common.

I’m aware, however this is too small to be a split.

I agree that if this is a typical split, it'd be highly unusual.  All of my split happened roughly 50:50, most uneven would look closer 1/3 to 2/3, never more lopsided than that.  

 

IF this is a split, could it be like a mushroom "walking", leaving just a tiny bit of flesh behind?    I, personally, never came across any posts/examples like this one. 

 

thanks for sharing, you get a new BTA, or a few, either way 😄

I’ve had BTAs spawn before, but it seems like I always had only females 😒.

Does anyone know if these anemones have a planktonic/medusal stage in their life cycle, or do they become benthic immediately?

Whatever happened, whatever the case, that's pretty cool. I've never seen a BTA that small outside of poorly made manual cuts.

All my other nems are 3-4 inches across and I’ve only ever had then split 50/50 down the middle. These are so tiny I just don’t see how it’s possible. Do you have any pics of yours?

Every single baby I had from the mother was not equal or even half the size.  Never saw them split just another smaller version appeared.

 

The only 2 pic I have are when they were a few weeks old.

 

I don't have a pic of the smallest one which was maybe 2"

Yeah I can believe that. These are about a half inch in size.
