You don't. They can also release, float around the tank, and start new colonies.

New rock honestly is the only way or boil or bleach it

Boil it outside if you do that suggestion. Don't wanna kill your family and pets too:puke:

I would just remove the rock and replace it with brand new dry rock. Then wherever there is palys left, make up some epoxy putty and putty right overtop of them and just keep it there.

Do i try to sell it or just throw it in the garbage. I'm scared it will it take over my aquarium. Is it a bad thing to have in an aquarium?

file fish will keep them in check, but they only eat the tentacles. (no more stinging). I sometimes turn my rock over face down in the sand. I vacuume them off the glass while i am cleaning, dont think they are harmful for the tank.

give them a fancy name, a high price tag and then wish for them to grow fast..........they should melt then rather quickly lol
