can't see which one on the pic that you are talking about? Perhaps put circle or arrow on the pic?

 

Splitting after you got it few days ago?!

 

I got RBTA 1 week ago, and it has been hiding when the light is ON and move around when the light is OFF. Anybody know why?

Give it some time to get used to the tank. Anemone's get irritated pretty easily and sometimes for no known reason.

Canadianeh- if your anemone is moving, especially with lights off and hiding when lights are on, its not happy. It looking for a spot with less direct light.

Anemones often move when displeased with where they are.

Anemones will split when happy or stressed. It could be splitting since you just transferred it to your tank.

now he has moved out from his hiding place and stay on the bottom back wall under direct light. However, he is not fully extended though.

Your tank is very young for an anemone
