Try to lower a nutrient as this one like a nutrient rich water and this will slow their growth rate, if this is not possible, remove the affected rock and replace with new cured/high quality fresh live rock

The Yellowpolyps have completely taken over our 55 gallon tank. They are on all of the live coral and on the walls of the tank. Is there a way to get rid of them. We would like to get our tank back HELP.

    Bruce, I know this is an aged article, I'm just starting out (about 8 months now) in the saltwater hobby and if you still have an abundance of those you'd like to get rid of please let me know. Thanks so much.

The Sunflower Coral is one tough customer. My chiller just died the other day, allowing my Red Sea Max reef tank to reach at least 90F, from its usual 79F, and this coral came through with flying colors, literally! My Mushroom anemones also survived, although they shrunk a bit.

I have had some success with yellow polyps, to the point that they have become a nuisance in my tank. They are growing on the tank walls and are attacking my lps and sps corals. I'm now seeking a way to cull or eliminate them.
