Green Button Polyps; an Issue?

Hello, I have recently got 2 green button polyps and have also just been told that they may be highly invasive and spread quickly. Just looking for experience and knowledge of fellow reefers? What are your opinons because i LOVE the way they look.

Yeah button polyps are usually pretty quick growers, I'd isolate them to a small rock on the sand bed honestly.

I tend to love it when they just pop up in random places in the tank

i always try to keep button palys on the upper rocks near rear glass as they tend to grow up , the back wall is the perfect place for them to grow this keeps them from invading other corals and they look good growing up the back glass
