Keeping mushrooms under control ?

I recently moved these mushrooms and where they were originally now has about 10 tiny ones growing ! The problem is they are on a huge piece of rock which can't be moved ! Does anyone know how to kill these tiny ones off as they overgrow my zoas and pallys ! Aptasia x seems to stunt them for a week or so but then they are back ! Any suggestions would be appreciated

It's just Kalkwasser powder mixed into a paste.

You can dab it onto the center of the mushroom.

for some they grow like weeds and for others they just don't grow at all

I meant to mention that they sell for $5 a polyp and up. They can be detached fairly easily and fragging them is super easy.

Agreed. I've been selling my Xenia on Craigslist for population control. Been working pretty well for me
