Palythoa

I have a small frag of palythoa and would like to remove it from the square I got it on and place it on some rock, any suggestions on how to do this or if I can even? I'm new to reefing and this is my first frag

I wouldn't do that, it will grow onto the rock eventually and trying to take it off can be a serious pain. They also release a toxin that can be quite serious if ingested. Just leave it all my zoas and Palys grow onto my rock from their plug.

Take a pair bone cutters and break pieces off of the square until you get down to a smaller piece of the tile without harming any of the corals flesh. Then glue that piece on to a rock. Frag plugs and tiles are really easy to chip and break. Thats what I do
