I've never actually cut/fragged one of these before....any tips would be really appreciated.

Only other option is trading it out and I'd rather not if possible.

Just break some of the heads off and sell them to your LFS or friends. That`s what I do.

I am lucky I have been to the reef farm and was able to watch this type of fragging in person.

I like to use a Dremel tool with a carbide saw blade for fragging LPS like these. You get a nice smooth cut that is easy to glue to and there is less risk to will shatter the frag. Don't cut yourself!
