I mix Kalk paste with a little corn starch to make it sticky. Costs pennies and works great.

Would it work if i removed the rock from tank and removed mushrooms then scrubbed with wire brush?
Could i then return the rock straight into my tank.

Of course it would. I've used a toothbrush to remove mushrooms before. Tears right through them. Makes heck of a mess...I'd rinse really well.

Why not take the rocks out with them on and take that rock to the LFS for a good amount of credit and get another piece of live rock to replace it why kill them when someone else may really want them

If you take the rock and get a nice sharp chisel under them so you chip them off with the small bit of rock they are attached to they will not come back then I would not go nuking your rock simply chip them off
