I've never done this but heard ice cubes on the foot will make them let go, or pointing a powerhead right at them so they get unhappy and move. Maybe Vishnu has a good trick though.

10? You have 10? YOWZA! I just have the one and it hasn't gotten very big. We're thinking of trying to feed it every day and see if it splits.

It seems like I heard someone talking about pointing a powerhead at them to ge them to detach. I'm sure someone will pipe in that knows for sure.

Good luck!

Another good way to get them off is use a plastic picnic knife to scrape them off when I use to let mine clone that I found was the easiest way to get them off with out hurting the foot.

I put a post on Jim D Reef about the meeting so maybe there will be someone coming. It is only about a half hour farther than grand forks to come here. I think from Fargo to GF is 80 miles and from Fargo to Bemidji is like 110 or so. But maybe someone will be comming you never know
Very Happy

I'd take one if their up for grabs too. Mabe Dedex would pick one up for me and I could get it from her if she makes it to a meeting some day? Wait....Val, are you having the next meeting at your place? I'd like one for my nano and I'm not sure mine is ever going to split!

the rtba has never been mean to any coral i have had. the one just split and they were living on a leather cabbage coral. they seem to like each other. once they start to split they seem to do it faster if you feed them. try scallops, thats what i feed them, also my carpet has been trying to split but i really dont like him so anytime i see him start to tear i move him in another tankn
