    I got a RBTA from Ben a while ago and it got huge. Like fancy restaurant plate big. So big that my clowns would disappear when they were in it. Anyways, it decided to split last night. Now I have 3. Yes it split into 3 anemones. Has anyone else had this happen?

    It happened to me once. Although the original mother was not even normal dinner plate size in my case.

    Fairly common! Unless it was a temp/salinity split you don't have anything to worry about

    That's cool, just never seen 3 before. Now my clowns are confused too. One is in one anemone and one is in the other.

    The also really like to split right after you get a couple extra's out the tank. Every time I get down to 2 they both split.
