protopaly/button polyps

So it turns out these cool looking giant palys I have are so big and so fast growing that they are out competing my good zoas and palys.
I was told to inject a few a day with peroxide. Just did my first few, and the closed, threw off some mucus and bubbles, and now, 30 minutes later, look like nothing happened. IDK, I was expecting an immediate result. Am I wrong, or do I need to up the ante to Joe's Juice or lemon juice etc?

in the 1st pic you can see a few RPE or PPE to get an idea of size. The big one in 2nd pic is 1.5 inches across, at least.

I would remove the rock they are on trade it in at lfs for other coral
and replace rock with a piece or 2 of base rock since base rock wont cause a spike

Unfortunately, that rock has 90% of my zoa garden on it. Still fairly young, so I could pop off the plugs and rubble on most of it, but I would lose some polyps. I guess I could call the resulting rock a "combo" rock lol.

I don't know how you could make them go away without a spike in your system, anyone know of something that eats them maybe ?
