Can you get underneath them and snip a piece of the rock off? This is how I do it.

I live on the westcoast of Florida and we find the Sundial snails in our Intercoastal Waterways on bridge pillars and such. There are also some starfish that are collected in the keys that will tear up some zoa/paly (unfortunately I made that mistake)
