    If you can move the rock, bring it home or move it to a different location in the tank so that it has to move- once it's on the run, you can peel it off easier. If you can't move the rock, cover the bta so that it has to move...

    Yeah, I've read about holding onto an ice cube in a plastic bag and then rubbing the base of the anemone. I've never done it but just read it on reefcentral.

    I've done this many times... its not fun but works... I take the piece out of the water for about 15 seconds... put it back in... rub the foot... and repeat. It takes about 5-10 minutes but has worked every time.
