Anyone ever fragged an anemone?

Im wondering if anyone out there has ever cut an anemone in half or quarters.

Sounds harsh I know, but for aquaculture. Thanks.

Phender fragged his carpet anemone before. Make sure, if you plan on doing this, you have the nem in a different tank with no other livestock. Heres the link with the carpet nem.

BTAs are easy.


I tried it on a big Heteractis Crispa, and lost it.
