Hydroids on Zoas

I think I have a hydroid on my new zoa colony. is there a way to kill it without harming the coral? should i just get rid of the coral? There is only space for one on it, so how does it multiply?

even if you kill a few zoos in the process they will grow back very quickly with the space being in the middle of the colony

a smaller zoo looks like he wants his space back, and has almost pushed completely over the hydroid. hopefully he succeeds!
