It should be able to reattach. maybe tie it down with a piece of bridal veil and a rubberband to a rock.

I mean the head should be able to reattach to another rock not to the stalk. The stalk may grow another head so leave it there.

put it stump side down on a rock and attach it by covering it up with a piece of bridal veil type material then put it in a low flow area of the tank. Should only take a couple of weeks to attach.

I do use nude knee high stocking for my carbon in the filters. Seems to be ok. See if you can cut a strip just big enough to go across the center to tie it loosely to the rock.

when you say tie it loosely you mean don't cover the entire leather but make a strip similar to using a rubber band to the rock just loose so it can move correct? I just don't wanna stress it.[/list]

Yes that's what I meant by strip. It just has to be snug enough to hold it down.
