Default Good way to peel an bubble-tip anemone off the rock

My tank is overgrown with bubble-tip anemones which I plan
to peel off the rock and trade in for some corals or some stuff...
The trick is - how do I peel it safely from the rock without hurting it?
Anybody has a trick to this job?

Hammer, chisel, prybars, dynamite, take rock out of water and let it
dry up and it will pop right off, inject it with **** use your ****ing
imagination dip****!

I've had luck moving a few anemones by pointing a powerehead right at
them for a few days to upset them. Sometimes that is enough for them
to loosen up enough to be safely pried off the rock. If that doesn't
work, take some ice and hold it to the foot of the anemone for a few
minutes. The anemone will really shrink from the ice and should
release. If it doesn't release within a few minutes, the ice may harm
it so only try a few ice cubes. Sometimes it works sometimes not.

Since I do not have 3rd tank to put it in, even temporarly,
I have to find a person who wants it first, and then when
we meet, we will try to move it out from my tank to some
plastic bag for transport :-) I will try your method then.

try putting a small rock next to it, then aim a powerhead at it on the
opposite side. it should move away from the water flow. when it's on the
small rock, include that in the purchase.

Do you have a refugium?

(If not, why not? :-))

I do not have a refugium... Why not? Maybe lack of room?

I have some macro algae growing in the sump (chaeto)
but the sump is just a simple 10 gallon tank, so the anemone
put there would be quickly grinded by the QuietOne 3000
return pump...

I have a BakPak refugium/skimmer combo. Needs about 8" behind the tank.
Works well, and gives me a good temporary place for things.
