If I can't prune the Rhodactis and need to frag it to shrink down to size, do I just cut thru the middle like a pizza pie?

I run an ETSS Reef Devil and about to upgrade to a larger skimmer because I upgraded tanks and have a heat issue. My take is the big negatives are the large pump (I run a Mag 7 on it) which generates...
