yea it helps but you said cut the whole thing alot of people say you can just cut peice off the top of the coral leaving your main coral looking healthy and looking like a coral.

I have never done it that way but yes, i guess you could just cut a "pizza" shape from the head and it will probably grow on and main coral will likely grow back in time and heal.
I would not cut into the base though or you will risk killing it.
very sharp scissors should be the weapon of choice and leave it in situ whilst making the cut.

Finger Leather Fragging

I wasnt fragging a toadstool but this link might help you about fragging a leather coral. I was scared to death but it was not really hard at all.
