Need help with coral

I have a glove polyp just got three days ago. When I put them in the tank I found a mushroom. I an told it is a Yuma. So here where I need help it growing on the base of one of the polyps it about the size of a dime I would love to move it to another rock by its self. What would be the best way to do this and or should I let it get bigger before doing so.

That doesn't look like a Yuma Ricordea to me, but either way,. you can just cut it free from the polyp rock with some scissors or a razor blade and place it on a rock elsewhere in the tank. you can simply sit it on a rock in a low flow area and it will attach itself in a couple days.

Sorry for steering you wrong on the initial ID, it's a Rhodactis.
