Too much on one rock?

I have zoas, button polyps, regular polyps, and a micro algae all on one small rock. Do I need to worry about separating these? This is the way I bought it.

If you have the room I would spread them out personally. I know I'm hoping to get a piece of my LR covered in zoas and have attempted to space everything out so they all have the ability to grow.

like things can grow together, but in nature, the strongest survive. you will lose something there. whichever is the fastest grower, or tallest grower will win in most cases.

you could always put the macro in my tank to grow out

They will do fine together as chemical warfare, sweeper tentacles etc. between those on that particular rock are null. The only problem could be the light issue where the larger, taller coral, algae will have best chances of producing and growing.
