My best advice is to try to move a piece of the rock that it is attached to. They are extremely fragile and I don't think it will survive attempts at direct detatchment.

hmmmm. well moving the rock won't work because there's tunicates on all sides of it! its not directly on the bottom, its still visible the way i have the rock now, its just kinda half in the sand. maybe i'll just push the sand away from that area and hope it moves up a bit. thanks for the help!
