What the preferred method for removing a Yuma and Ricordea from a frag plug to a piece of rock rubble.

I have kept them on a frag plugs for a while not to stress them out while allowing me to move them around the tank to find the best area to keep them.

I have now found a spot where they will thrive, and want to transfer off the plug to a piece of rock rubble, which will later get glued to a larger piece if LR.

Why not just glue the frag onto the larger piece of LR? They'll overgrow it pretty quickly, and an unattached yuma is a whole lot harder to deal with than one that's already happily stuck to something.

with a piece of rock rubble....I can give the Yuma room to grow, while I can find a happy place for it in the tank....where the lighting isn't too strong near my SPS, And the flow isn't too strong.

I have to agree with Organism. If you don't want the plug part of the frag plug then just snip it off. I wouldn't remove it.

Just place the plug on your desire location and let it do it's thing..once it spreads to a rock it will hopefully leave a foot behind and you'll have them in both places..when I got mines in a plug i usually lay the plug sideways touching a piece of rock and next thing you know the yuma is reaching for the rock...

Ok....gotcha! Right now I have a bunch on my sandbed. I want to move them to my rock work and make room on my sanded for another Scoly and a clam.
