Attaching yumas?

Hey guys, is there any better way to get a Yuma to attach to a rock? I've had mine in a shallow glass dish with three stones in there for about two weeks now, and I'm admittedly starting to get antsy. After two weeks, I assumed enough time passed for it to latch on to something, but I tried to place it today, and it's still barely on anything at all, the slightest nudge knocked it off. Am I just being too impatient? How long does this usually take? This yuma opens up and closes just fine, and looks like it's healthy, but it just doesn't want to get a grip. Any advice? A small glass dish with netting around it really looks butt ugly in a 10g tank... Perhaps I should consider a secondary tank for quarantine/fragging...

Take the sand out. Add more rubble in. What kind of flow is the dish being placed in? It looks like a really shallow dish. So I would want it in a place with REALLY low flow.

I usually use a small salsa jar when I'm attaching shrooms like this

90 gallon mixed reef XPS1000SSS skimmer, 2 radions gen 1, tunze osmolator w/ kalk dispenser, 70 lbs pukani, mp40w x2; 1 tomini, 1 clown 2 mandarins. Vinegar dosing, and micro bubble scrubbing.
