removing mushrooms before starting new tank

I am getting ready to setup my new 120 and I will be using all the same rocks from my current 125. How can I remove all the mushrooms off the rocks before putting them into the tank so that I don't lose control of them? Anything else I should do to the rock before introducing them into the new tank?

Sell the rock.

Hopefully someone will have a better solution for you, but when I redid my 75 because of out of control mushrooms I ended up selling all my rock, there were just too many of them to remove them all.

Granted mine were really bad it would have taken weeks to remove them all. Plus I wanted to make sure that there was no way that a little one that I missed could take over again.

Here are some of the old rocks, and why I pretty much had no choice to sell them.

Good luck to ya.

I'm not fully sure, but I believe you can cover them with Kalk paste, and it will kill them. Hopefully someone else will chime in. Those pics above are insane! That's a lot of mushrooms.
