Cut pieces off with a pair of scissors and put them where you want them. frankly, This coral will be everywhere eventually,so no need to frag it. If it's under decent flow, it will lose the tops of it's branches and they will float to new spots.

Yeah when I first introduced it to the tank it split off about 6 small frags and they're all starting to get bigger but I need some slightly bigger ones as I'm starting a 90gal here soon and want some to be in there too

depending on the size of the kenya all you need to do is snip off a piece the size you want than take a small rock place it on the rock wrap a rubber band around it it will attach pretty fast
