I got a rose bubble tip anemone and everything seemed like it was great for about 3 weeks but then it split, what can be the cause of an anemone splitting? my tank has ultra low nutrients and all my levels are spot on.....do anemone need a certain par level like corals?

Anemones definitely need good light. Even more so than most corals. It splitting isn't necessarily a sign that something is wrong though. Sometimes they will split just from being moved to new conditions. Post some pics if you can

went and measured par in the area where the anemone is at and it is around 30-50 par it changes with the ripples from the water moving on top

That is close to no light. You'll definitely need to upgrade

I have a set of vegas but the anemone went to to a spot with very low light, should I try moving both of them to a new spot or just let them be?
