Just take a pair of scissors and cut off the arm or a selection. Super gluing isn't going to work, you can stick it inside of a cervices in a rock or take a rubber band and wrap it around a piece of rock. In time it will attached to the rock. If you can take the coral out of the water when you're fragging it that would be better, as a lot of times it will release a lot of junk into the water.

100% agree. Very easy to do. You can also use a scalpel or razor blade if needed.

Razor will work fine. Make sure to use a fresh one nice and sharp, and cut the piece in one motion so you leave the flesh nice and smooth vs jagged.
