Bubble-Tipped Anemone Split Again

One of the green bubble-tipped anemone in my reef tank split today.  This is the third split since I acquired the original specimen a couple of years ago.  The mother was looking a bit wonky shaped yesterday.  When I got home from work, the new daughter anemone had successfully split off and wandered from the back of the tank to this position near the front of the tank as shown in the picture.

This was by far the quickest recovery I have seen.  The previous split took some time to heal and both participants went into hiding.  Hopefully this one will be well behaved and stay put as wandering anemone are not the best thing for the surrounding corals.
