    The only thing that I have heard that's effective, is to keep the rock with the polyps separate, so that they cant attach and spread to other rocks. If there's only a trace of them on a rock, they will keep appearing on that rock, even if you pull them off. Someone on another forum a while back suggested taking the rock with excess polyps out and blow torching it. (buth then you risk losing other live on the rock like coraline etc.) Maybe one of the experts can tell you more

    The best solution is to get wet, wash ur hand in freshwater then just grab the coral colony and get a feel for how it grows and sticks to the rockwork.

    Then just start ripping piesces off :p
