Put it at the very top of the tank for one. Also, when it moves to another rock, let it get thick enuf and try to pull it off. Takes practice and a stalk thick enuf to grab hold of.

I actually had a farm going for a while and was taking 6-8 frags (mounted on small rock) to the LFS almost monthly for $8 a piece.

hmmm, that would be nice. I'll have to see what my LFS will do for me. Now I'll have to start thinking about a frag tank, lol. My husband is going to divorce me!

I would check if they take it before you go into farm mode lol. Mine wouldn't accept it, they had enough already.

I have heard of people just going in with scissors and clipping heads off and just throwing it away they had so much. You probably have awhile before you have to worry about that.

Yea, this stuff is terrible. Grows TOO well. If only my nuclear green palythoas would grow like that! Oh, and my acroporas!

My LFS HATES the stuff. So I am stuck with pulling it out and flushing it!

I dont cut with scissors because:
1-The stuff releases a NASTY substance that I believe nuked my tank last year.
2-It will rapidly grow back and continue to encroach.

You may try putting a torch coral near it. ZZZAAPPP!
Its not that hard to just grab the stalk with tweezers and carefully pull the hole critter off the rocks. Run carbon while you do this as the stuff fouls the water when bothered.

Ive got the giant kind that DOESNT pulse. So in other words, an eyesore that bothers the other corals. I was able to pull most out though.

EDIT: Maybe Jimbo could lend you his mean acan to "teach it a lesson".

I love the torch coral so that's a good idea. What about the hammer? or frog?
