Relocating a feather duster

I have this duster that is attached to the middle of a rock. I would like to relocate him, but there seems to be a fleshy attachment that is quite interwoven in this porous rock. Have any of you tried this? Any idea if it will cause damage to the duster if I just try to scrape it's "foot" off of the rock?

If he`s stuck I would not try to move him. You could pull him out of the tube and then it will be over. IMO dont try.

Ok, I guess that this rock will just have to become part of the future plans.

Thanks

if you dont want the rock you could try to break the spot where its attached off...could be risky though

The tubes are quite delicate, a bit like rolled up paper, so best not to do anything if you can't move the entire rock.

Yeah scraping the foot off may cause it to become so stressed it would abandon the tube and it is very difficult to get them to relocate and make a new tube in a captive environment.

Nothing at the moment, I think that rock will get moved into the 135 and I'm just thinking I may want to do something different with it. I guess I was looking for information for the sake of knowing as much as anything

I'd say it's about 12" across.
