Need to kill some coral...

I don't know the names of these but I had the flowy coral on a rock and it grew onto the big rock next to it. I need to get it off or kill it because it covers everything. I've had no luck trying to peel it off. It's like a coat of plastic when it's not opened. I really do not want to try and get that rock out...

Just trim it with a razor blade. Sell the drags or trade them for other coral.

I'll try the kalk. It's impossible to peel/ scrape it off. If any tiny speck remains, it grows back and it grows over anything in its path.
