U can't do much, if u don't like it getting bigger u can just pull them off the rock and either throw them away, give to friend or local shop or u can just put them somewhere else in the tank, I no it sounds barbaric pulling them off the rock but they are so hardy they almost always survive they look a little limp for a wile but within a fue days they are back to normal I have loads in my tank and what I do is put them all around the same place so it look so thick it kind of controls them a little because they are all fighting for the light

I put mine on craiglist. They grow like weeds in modern tanks. Cool coral, just have to constantly keep them in check

Best way to control it i found out the hard way was not to add it at all! Lol! I tried to control it by putting frag rocks around it and selling the frags but that didn't work long! Ended up replacing my rock
