    Here are some pics of my new Green Bubble Tip Anemone. Her name is Bubbles (my mom named her:p)!

    Is she recovering from propagation (splitting) or is she starting to split? I can't tell but I'm pretty sure it's the first one because she was right next to a larger one in the store.

    Please comment on my aquarium!

    Hey, check out my post on your other thread. I don't want to double post or anything so I'll ask all of my questions there.

    What kind of lighting do you have? It looks to be slightly bleached, just a heads up.

    I have 1 18w Power Compact bulb, and 1 18w Actinic, it's the stock set-up for the 8 gallon Biocube, it's about 4w per gallon.

    Any ideas on the splitting/healing part?

    I would take it back. Not nearly enough lighting for it in all honesty. Plus, too small of a tank. You could maybe try a condy but even that would be pushing it IMHO.

    Its not gona make it with that kind of lighting. I have mine under 500 watts of metal halide lights and it chose to stay at the very top where the light and flow is intense.
    You should get some serious flow goin in there. Get a maxijet 1200 atleast.

    Your anemone is healing from a split.

    here is my green bubble that just split into 3.
