Have any of you had to separate your Maroon?s from hosting there new BTA?

I have had this pair for a few years and the single 4 inch female for over 7 years. Love these super agressive guys but they are so ruff with the one they love a BTA i just picked up Sunday.

In the LFS it was about 8 inches wide open not being hosted.

I took action today....

I bought a tank divider from Petsmart and sectioned off the front of the tank. The Nem showed signs of relief right away. Puffed out its tentacles and ate a little bit.

If anybody else has done this please chime in and tell me your success and after how long you needed to quarantine.
