That handy lil rocket launcher you have there would do the trick There are chemicals such as Flatworm Exit or siphon them out or the use of animals (fish, nudibranchs, specific shrimp, etc.).

Can I take some tweezers to get them out? I saw 3 on my mushroom coral but they are small.

I'd use a small siphon hose, even rigid airline tubing works to suck them out whole.

Even in large quantities, I'd just siphon them out with tubing. They're dumb and easy to siphon off.
