You might also have luck removing some if you point a powerhead at the colony -- shrooms will detach themselves if they don't like their location, and with any luck some will loosen up or let go and you can remove them. If it's possible, you could put the rock into a bucket or place an onion bag over the colony in the tank before you try blasting it with current, that way the shrooms can't take off once they detach.

Whether you're cutting them off or using current to force them to let go of the rock, you could try tossing the removed mushrooms into a container filled with rubble/small rocks, maybe in the sump -- they'll attach quickly, and you can trade them in at the LFS or give them to fellow hobbyists.
