Well that one will quickly multiply,i think you should get a peppermint shrimp because they eat them and look cool,just make sure you get one with the dark eyes not greenish,the darker eye ones have worked for me and from what i heard many others

if you can get the rock it's on out you can burn it with a lighter, just make sure you don't roast anything else on the rock

If your fast you can use a hypodermic needle and syringe and inject it with hot RO/DI water. You have to actually penetrate the flesh for this to work very well.
