You can peel him off but do it VERY gently. Could take you 20 minutes even. Just don't damage the foot.

i called live aquaria and they told me to put ice on the outside of the bucket under the foot and it worked really well within 5mins they both (the 2nd on ended up "Putting his foot down" as well) let go and i was able to move them into the tank and they both secured themselves as soon as i put their foot against rock. I hope they find a nice home in the tank.

I am very impressed with them because they are by far the healthiest anemones i have ever seen.
