Anemone Split.

This afternoon my bubble tip anemone split. One remained where it originally was and the other moved into a crevice between two rocks, kinda out of sight. My question is this, Is there anything I need to do or should I just let them go and see what happens?

It was looking wierd for the last few days, but was eating and filling out just fine, just had a strange shape to it. I know why now. As soon as the "twin" comes out of hiding I will get some pictures of them.

Thanks for any information in advance.

Mike

Here is a very good site on bubble anemone's. It shows the split and how to care for them after. Says it could take up to two weeks for them to grow a new mouth so feeding isn't necessary til then.
