Starburst (Star Polyp)

I have had this star polyp coral for 5 months now and it has doubled in size. It began growing up the glass of the tank for a few weeks now and I wanted to know how I should go about fragging it off. If anyone has any suggestions I would greatly appreciate them.

Just peel it off if you can. Or slide a razor under it and peel.

Alright, thanks. Can I use a reef safe epoxy to glue it down onto another rock? Or will that not work.

I'd just rubber band it. The glue may work as well but I'm not sure

ya that stuff sticks to anything, just put it on a rock and wrap a rubber band around it. It'll grow to it in no time...
