Awesome! The original two arms that survived an attack are regenerating four more. No problem!

Lucky shot of it using a huge jet of water from its siphon to shoot completely out of the water (and the dish)! It had been sulking in the dish after being captured by a group of students; see rock-coloration in second photo. The third photo shows it going back to sulking after its unsuccessful escape from the paparazzi.
