I'm sorry to see this. I remember I gave those anemones to your buddy when you guys came and picked up some stuff I was selling. That is the exact reason I got rid of all of them. I have always read that the anemones may have been splitting often because of unfavorable conditions. That wasn't the case for these rbta we had. Everyone who has got one of the clones always report them splitting very quickly. Good luck on your come back.
