I’m seeking some advice on controlling and eliminating clover coral in my tank. These clovers came with the rock from my other tanks. I’m trying to figure out how to get rid of this coral as it if over taking some of my other corals. Is it easier just to get the corals off the rock and get rid of the rock or can I get rid of them without hurting any other corals or inverts?
    If it’s easier to get rid of the rock would anyone have any to trade possibly?
    Photos attached to see the take over

    Thanks
    Robbie

    If you can take the rock out, do so. Scrape them all off the best that you can with something sturdy like bone cutters. Then dust the areas with kalk (like a powdered donut) and let it harden for 15-20 minutes out of the water. Put it in a bucket of tank water for a few more hours to harden even more. When the kalk will not swish off all that easily, then it is safe to put back in the tank.

    If the kalk never hardens, then just rinse it off before it goes back in the tank.

    That would be awesome. I don't drive down to Denver much. I would really appreciate it, and could definitely return the favor sometime.
