Zoanthid Sting

I have some orange zoanthids that are practically taking over my tank. They have grown around by bubble coral and I'm a bit worried that they might sting it or cause some other problems for it. I have noticed that the bubble isn't opening up all the way lately. Not sure if the zoas are the cause or not. Should I remove some of the zoas? What do you all think?

Whenever other corals encroach upon other corals then there is sometimes problems. You might want to move one or the other.

I believe that the bubble coral has a far stronger sting to it then the Zoa. so I don't think it will let it get to close to it. the Zoa will loose.
