Can you tell us more about your system, like the size of the tank, lighting over it, current parameters, any recent changes...so on?
Normally, I don't ever see an anemone splitting as a good thing. It occurs, but most likely in our closed systems something has stressed it enough to feel like it needs to 'save its bloodline' and splits to double the chances of survival. They key is to figure out what the stress is.

No signs of bleaching? Are there clowns being rough on it?
