soft coral questions

how can we get our xenia, leather, and mushrooms to detach from the rock that they came on and move to our lr in our tank? there really isnt anywhere we can put them where they are sturdy enough on the little rocks they came on. they keep falling over into the sand. So, whats the best way to move them? thanks

Use a marine epoxy such as or superglue gel to secure the small rocks in place.

to physically take them off the existing rocks you will hve to do some sergery with a razor blade. Put the blade as close to the rock as possible to cut them off.

Or you could just epoxy the small rocks they came on to your live rocks.

To have them attach you could also use string or a rubber band to hold them to the rocks for a week or so till they attach.
