You can use your scissors and make one quick cut as long as they are sharp. Cut through the foot NOT the polyp, it can help to make them close up before you make your cut so you can see where you are cutting. Just be careful and listen to everyone above. After you cut it you should do a water change and run carbon just to be safe.

Ah! More great advice! Thanks, y'all!

So I started the water change I had already planned due to last week's Nitrate/Nitrite spike. One snip (no razor blades in this beard-o's apt.) with no pause, and 5 fresh gallons of water later, the small colony & frag colony are separated.

The large colony is now in the 75g, opening up less than Ĺ hour after the surgery. The operation was a success...both patients are happy!

No other corals are/were within 8" of the "wound" site.

You guys & gals are awesome!

[Edit: Been using carbon since Day 1]
