relocating ricordia?

I have a question for the pro's. We have had our orange ricordia for 6 months and it is finaly splitting in two or posibly three. The problem is when we bought it, it was on a rock that is only the about one inch in diameter. Now it is about 5 inches when fully extended and we would like to relocate atleast one of them so they have some room. Is there a safe way to move one without harming it?

If you place a small rock next to the ricordia rock and cross your fingers, one will migrate to the other rock and you can move it. You can try pointing a powerhead at it to speed up the migration. You can't move already attached ones. You will have to move the neighboring coral to a safer location. Give it lots of room, they will spread out.
