Purple Mushrooms taking over! Help

My LFS so kindly introduced about 20 Purple mushrooms to my tank about 6 months ago. The 20 have become 200 and still increasing. They are covering all my rock and as I get ready to transfer to my new 175 bow I wish to contain these to just a couple rocks as I will be introducing more corals now.

Is there as easy way to remove these buggers. They are pretty but I don't want a whole tank of them. I know they can be cut and even propogated but if I razor them aren't they just gonna grow back? I've plucked several already but it seems not a pratical way to remove them--half of them shred more or less.

Any advice greatly appreciated

Sounds like you have quite the business opportunity. Maybe get a bunch of rubble, grow the shrooms on it and sell back to the LFS or on ebay...
