If you have multiple stalks on a rock just peel one off or cut it off. get as close tothe rock surface as you can adn glue it onto a plug or another rock. At least thats what I had to do. In the pico one of the stalks split and was starting to adhere to another rock so I peeled it very carefully off the other rock and it seems to be fine.

I just take a razor blade and pry them off the rocks. In a couple of weeks new stalks have already filled in the spots and you can't tell anything was ever removed. After I thin them out I throw everything in a bag and give them to my lfs. Mine don't seem to be to picky about flow. Ones I've had in high flow seem to grow longer stalks than the ones I have in a low flow area.

I just throw them in a bag with a little water. I let my lfs figure out what he wants to do with them. I give them to him for free, so I don't go through any efforts to attach them to anything.
