Can you sticky an article on best conditions to cause a quadricolor to bubble and how to encourage them to split?

Thanks for your patience,

heavy feedings, or large water changes (>10%) with water that is a few degrees off from the tank water.

Worked for me.

Speaking for Bryan, that was for the split.

As for making them bubble -- good luck ;)

I have yet to read anything that sure a true fact of how to get them to do it. There are a bunch of theories, but not a true fact. I've had clones (of each each) were one had bubbles and the other did not. They were within a couple of inches from each there.

Thanks! I've been trying to increase the flow to help it bubble, but if I put too much flow on it, it just moves away from it. I've also been trying a scwd to change up the flow and it seems to love playing in the flow but no bubbling yet.

Oh and by overfeeding it, how much? I feed it a cube of krill about twice a week and it seems to enjoy the spirulina flake food I've been feeding my Maroons.

btw, here's a pic.

Do a search and find any article you can from Anthony Calfo on anemone propagation. As long as the anemone is healthy you can propagate is a often as every 2 weeks if you wanted too....

You know, I read that article. But I feel like if it can split on its own I'd like to let it.

My LFS said that it needs more light to bubble. Is that anybody's experience?

btw, I miss Royal Oak. I grew up going to the Detroit zoo, I still have one of those elephant keys for the speaker boxes.

I don't think more light will make it bubble. My BTAs used to be under
3 * 96 PC (in my 58g), when I upgraded to 2*175 MH + 2 *96 PC, I didn't notice any difference. (that was the only change to the tank at that time)
