Someone should mention the probability of the polyps having toxins...
Be overly cautios when handling and or fragging Zoanthus or Palythoas. They have the ability to have palytoxin in the tissue. Once damaged, the natural tendency is to defend itself. The concept of propagation through fragging is not something the coral will understand.
Wear gloves and protective eyewear when fragging. Avoid allowing any tools used when cutting to be handled by anyone/thing. There are horror stories about the dangers of palytoxin all over the web.

But yes Lance I just kind of made a little part on the bottom and set it on the rock and like I said some just fell off to the bottom of the tank over time.
