    I got a bit of a problem with my bubbletip anemones. They keep reproducing. I started with 1 and they just keep dividing. When one wanders to a spot were I can remove it without damaging it, I take it out, but this is not always possible. I don't feed them. Any advice on how to get them to stop reproducing?

    Assuming that your talking about actual BTA's and not one of the problem anemones like Aiptasia or Majano anemones, you really don't have a problem. If nothing else it shows your doing something right.

    I'd say remove them when you can, and sell, trade or give them away. Sometimes you can change water flow or lighting a bit in order to get them to move to a place where you can remove them.

    Yes, I mean BTA. It is kind of a problem, because they annoy the other corals. Right now their number is again up to five and I can't remove them without tearing down the rocks. I'll just have to annoy them into moving.

    What’s your level of N & P?
    How consistent is that level?
