this method works, but better trading someone for another rock, i have pulled rock and ran under super hot water then took tooth brush and rub rest off, this will kill what ever bacteria ect the water gets on though

Any chance you can remove the rock and chip off the surface of the rock where they are growing, and mostly preserve the rock (and the palys)? I'm sure someone would take them off your hands if you post them up!

...my only reasoning being they are live animals after all

Kathy, just because something is alive doesn't mean they don't deserve to be culled... especially if they are delicious. Plus it's not like they're defenseless, they pack the worlds most potent neurotoxin that we know of.
