Can't really find a spot away that I like or without restructure, is there a way to keep it in contained what I mean is can I just cut it when I see it start to grow onto the other rock?

I made the mistake of placing it on a structural piece in my tank which I've been battling it by every couple months blasting one side with a pump which slowly kills it then switch it back like a yoyo effect lol. You can also use epoxy or putty to just cover it up to kill it. You can try peeling it off but most rocks I've seen will have too many nooks to really get it off...

Edit* you could try breaking a frag off which you could keep and sell the large colony off for a free frag in a sense.. then you could place it better and have it fit the tank more to your liking

If you have room on your back wall glue it on there and it will spread out on there. If there is high enough lighting, some people just let it grow on the sand and frag it..very convenient.
