Dwarf grass transplant
I recently purchased a batch of plants from liveaquaria,(awesome company, by the way) among which is about 10 pots of dwarf grass. It is firmly rooted into the sponge, tho. I want to actually plant the grass into my substrate, but I am concerned about disturbing the root system and killing all my grass. Would it be feasible to plant the 'pots' they are in? I really want that sponge stuff out, so any tips would be greatly appreciated!Fish feel pain, too!!

Take/Cut the plastic pots off, Remove the wool, Plant.
You may find you need to spend some time with a bowl of water getting all the rock wool out of the roots [Potential PITA] but as long as you are not a bull in a china shop about it they will be fine.
Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.
A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

+1, just go slowly with some tweezers, preferably planting tongs and free up the roots.

I am getting a bowl and a comfortable spot right now. I don't know why I didn't think of that myself. That's why I am a part of this fabulous community! I'll post some photos when I'm done!Fish feel pain, too!!
