Suppose I have a plasma. Inside the plasma is a knotted flux tube in an electric field. Will it tend to move?

Is this there a better forum for this question?

Yea, probably one of the Physics forums instead of Astrophysics, maybe General Physics.

Can you explain what type of flux you are talking about.

Magnetic flux. When EM fields go through a highly conductive medium the magnetic flux tends to concentrate in regions. These regions are tube shaped, so they are called flux tubes.
