What's the best way to frag this? Small SPS encrusted coral growing on a piece of live rock. Scrape it off with a razor?

I could not get a close up pic of the rock and coral. If needed ill take another pic and upload it.

Thanks for the help!

Depends on the tools you have available to use. I'd chip or cut it off the rock. Are you trying to save you?

what type of sps are you trying to frag? if it is an encrusting monti you may need to cut the rock in 1/2 with a diamond blade.

Attached is a pic. Sorry about the poor quality. Best I can do. I don't know what kind of SPS, it came with the rock along with the zoas. :)

cilyjr- I have a 1/2 with a diamond blade, but it's dull. Going out tomorrow to replace it.
