Are you sure they are Kenya trees and not aiptasia or majano anemones? If they are kenya trees, scraping them off the rock will work. Any tissue left behind will start to form a new colony with time so remove as much as you can. Running GAC after removing them will get rid of any chemicals/toxins released from cutting them. A PWC would also be a good idea.

Yes, they are from my larger kenya tree coral. Every couple of weeks it drops off a limb and it attaches to the lr in the tank (now, why the mushrooms can't be more cooperative I'll never know).

I just returned from the lfs with my rubble so we'll see how successful I am in attaching the mushrooms.

Again, thank you all for the information!
