ricordea mushrooms

My tank is getting over ran with lots of ricordea mushrooms. They are starting to choke out other corals. Is there any ideas of what I can do?

I can't. They are everywhere and all over all of my rocks. Most of my rocks are the size of a volleyball or bigger. All of my other corals are on the same rocks.
