Where did Rosey #2 go!?

So my Rose Anemone split earlier this week. My husband thinks I was imagining it, but I KNOW it happened because there were two separate anemones on two different areas of rock. So today it looked like they were together, and then the anemone started moving and there isn't two anymore. Can an anemone rejoin as one after it splits into two? Also I noticed there is a tiny bud of something dangling by the anemone on the move

There are two in the second pic, I would say they can't join once split, but they can retract a lot more than you would think. First pic looks like something else. Just give it time to come back out.

I've kept a lot of bubble tips, after splitting it isn't uncommon for them to retreat for awhile to heal up. Their M.O. is to attach underneath rocks and reach up and out, sometimes a very long way, so it is likely just recovering from the split. And sometimes they will not do anything after splitting.

I looked a little harder under rocks and found #2!! :woohoo: Not sure if it's able to eat yet if it still has to form a mouth, but I shot a little mysis shrimp under the rock for it. Although I think my lined wrase has decided to steal most of it...
