    The GSP shouldn't kill the SPS, but ppl have used epoxy, and other stuff to cover it. GSP usually is like a carpet over floor, maybe you can rip it off.

    Use a toothpick and to lift it up and you should be able to pull it off, do it slowly.

    Green star polyp coral. Very cool and hardy, easy to grow but hard to get rid of it when it grows over the tank

    Just cut the SpS off its base, remount it somewhere else, and remove the rock with the GSP. Easy peasy.
