The trick is - how do I peel it safely from the rock without
hurting it? Anybody has a trick to this job?

Let us know how it goes.

Since I do not have 3rd tank to put it in, even temporarly,
I have to find a person who wants it first, and then when
we meet, we will try to move it out from my tank to some
plastic bag for transport :-) I will try your method then.

try putting a small rock next to it, then aim a powerhead at it on the
opposite side. it should move away from the water flow. when it's on the
small rock, include that in the purchase.
