dead plate coral sprouting babies

This plate coral skeleton has at least 14 babies on it, as well as 3 or 4 blue shroom (and a few aptasia ). Will the babies pop off when they are ready, or should I cut them off? It is a cool piece, just a bit big for my tank.

They will do things on their own. Plate coral can actually inflate themselves and move around to where they are happy.
