    possible , but might be easier to move the Monti

    If you do move the nem, and its still in same tank, there are no garauntees as to where the nem will end up, it may do damage elsewhere

    if the nem has been where it is for a while, leaving that and moving the monti to an area of improved flow, may help

    the nem could be encouraged to move by directing a power head at its foot, they will often loosen their grip due to this and can then be teased away and re located

    alternatively, an ice cube held against the foot can cause same reaction from nem
