    I have 2 lil stalks of xenia that at one point had many stalks and thrived and now are down to two stalks, would like to remove and try to place somewhere else is tank...currently at the bottom of tank.....moderate flow, best way to remove them from the rock or just let them die off?

    You can either use a razor blade and cut the stalk or take a dremel and cut the part of the rock they are attached to off.

    razor blade worked perfectly, got two off...one stalk was too small to get cut off, so we'll see what happens, can't be no worse than how they were doing.
