moving coral off of rock

OK, i have a large rock that has some mushrooms growing on it!! i like the rock BUT it is housing a KILLER shrimp i dont know yet whether it is a pistol or mantis but it has eaten a maroon clown and three skunk shrimp!!

i cant add anymore livestock until he is out if the tank!!! there is also a anemone on the rock?? is it possable to remove the corals from the rock and then i can remove it from tank to make sure the problem is solved!!

It`s going to be hard. You can try to take a old credit card and try to get it under the foot of the anenome and pry him off. Be careful and dont damage the foot as it will surely die if you do.
