The best way to remove the polyp is carefully cut it at it's base with a very sharp exacto blade. Get as close to the rock as possible and be sure to wear rubber gloves. The frag
can then be located to a different area or placed in a bowl/veil set up to re-attach for later placement.
Be sure afterwards you place some epoxy puddy over that area you cut the zoo from or you will get new ones and the problem could be worse than just the one. They spread quite quickly when they are in the right area.
