Starburst polyp has gone crazy!

My Starburst polyp is spreading crazy everywhere, on my LR and over other polyps. It is taking over my tank. Is there anyway to stop them from spreading?

Prune them and sell them as frags or trade them with other fellow reefers. I take it you are talking about green star polyps? Got any pics? Ususally you can peel them off the rock, or score off the section you want to remove and peel that off. Some other stinging corals placed close by will keep them in check as well. These things will take over like wildfire.

They are quite difficult to peel off, especially when they are located at the back of the tank, very difficult to reach. They are the yellow type. I now regret having brought them home
