Hello All!

We have this beautiful Rose tip anenome with 2 mated clowns. Apparently this big guy is very happy being his rapid growth . He is now so big he covers coral and live rock. Every time we move him he always goes back to this spot.

Will he end up splitting or just getting bigger?

He'll split. Give it time!

Change the flow in the tank by moving return nozzles and powerheads up, down or sideways and within a few days the anemone will probably move to another place, hopefully off of coral.

 I agree with Mark, change the flow.

I have the opposite problem. Mine split like crazy. Luckily mine like to hangout together (for now). I have like 15-25 of them. If you are ever in Logan and want a smaller one let me know.
