Easiest way to remove Parazoonthus from LR

I got some Parazooanthur from someone a while back and man these things grow Extremely fast.. They started off at about 10 small polyps max 2 months ago and now I have too many... They are starting to get close to my zoos. I would like to remove about half of them if not more.. Please help me remove these the best possible way.. Anyone around in the Portland, Or area whos interested in trading let me know..

man i wish i live near you i would love to help you get them off your hands. just started my reef tank. and i will be getting my first coral on friday (may be a few more then 1)

A 46 gal bow front (Soft coral) reef tank with a 10 gal sump. And a 30 gal (SPS and Clam) reef tank hooked up to the sump of the 46 so they share water.

The best way would be to chip off small pieces of the rock that the poylps are on. LR usually chips pretty easily. The next best way is to trim them off with a razor blade or scalpel...be sure you get all of each polyp you want to remove though or they will grow back. I have a couple of rocks with parazoanthus and zoanthus growing together and it doesn't seem to cause a problem. If your zoos are the smaller variety though, the yellow poylps may shade them. If you can chip off the small pieces of rock, you might take the frags to the LFS and trade for some stuff you don't have.
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

Ok I just removed a bunch of them and placed them in a tupperware bowl with some of my sand in it for the time being.. I am sure I can find someone to unload these on... It went pretty well and all I need now is for the white areas on that piece of LR to hurry up and get encrusted with coraline again..

Thanks again Logan Kudos to you..
