Wavy poyp

I have this really cool long flowing polyp of some sort. Placed it next to a rock. One of the "arms" has split off the frag and is now stuck to the rock? Is this what they do? Is this how they propagate?

Yes, this is how they will propagate. Does it look like this?

I used to have entire forests of the stuff though, was rampant across the whole one side of my 90. Completely mesmerizing when it was all pulsing.
