Anemones stinging itself?

I've been unable to find a thorough answer to this question online. But let's say for example you had a BTA. Then that BTA naturally split. Would those now two separate anemones be able to sting each other. Sorry if this a nooby question, I was just super curious.

Are you seeing this happen? Usually they won't. I have two totally unrelated BTA's squished right next to each other. I know plenty of others that have huge gardens of them.

Other types of anemones could sting BTAs though, especially ones with a meaner sting.

No, it was just an example. I was though thinking about getting a rose BTA and putting it next to my green one. Just curious.

Like I said, you're fine.

I literally put a green one next to a rainbow. Totally fine to this day and they're totally intertwined.
