If they are soft corals you can use an exacto blade to cut them off of the plug. They can then be glued onto a rock with cyanoacrylate gel super glue. I would leave them on the frag plugs until they get settled.

Take a look at fragging videos and it will give you a good idea of the process.

with softies its easier to just cut off the nub on bottom of plug making it flat than just glue the plug to the rock , the plug will blend in over time this also gives you something to handle rather then the coral itself

the picture is to show how the plug starts to blend in over time

A lot of my frag plugs are getting covered in coralline algae and I still think they look awful. There's something about the straight lines that stick out like a sore thumb and annoy me.

they may look bad for a while but the coral should grow to cover it up eventually as well...
