Coral Question/Help

Yea so nothing major I got got my first coral a colony of shrooms a little over a month ago they seem to be doing well, but here is my question there is another little something poke'ing up i dont really no what it is (obvious another coral) it has one large polyp and when i first turn my lights on i can see two small babies because my mushrooms quickly cover then when they expand im just wondering are the shrooms going to smother them out? Could i possible cut one mushroom off to give them some space to grow and possibly flourish? They look kinda cool , may be hard to see but its florescent orange an wedged between to shrrooms . Thx in advance for any help/advice provided

Looks like a zoa. You can break up the rock and have some frags.

Ok how would I go about doing that, remove the whole rock from my tank then crack it in half with a precision shot from a hammer and chisel? XD sorry if that seems like an odd question I just want to kno the best way as I dont want to harm anything

I found this to be useful:
How to Frag Mushrooms - YouTube

Can use a chisel and hammer and for smaller pieces garden cutters.

That's a common zoa from Indo. It's not that colorful, nor will it be worth it to save it for future frag missions. I would simply let things work themselves out and if you want zoas, go buy some super colorful ones.
