Zoanhids on SPS bases

Can someone tell me how to get rid of zoas and shrooms that are multiplying all over my tank that I'm trying to convert to mostly SPS tank? Taking some of rock out is nearly impossible
without major aquascaping changes so please share your solutions.

OK, this may sound radical, but have you considered a predator, such as Chaetodon rafflesii? Or Chelmon rostratus? I had a pair of C. rafflesii with my corals and they only showed interest in the zooanthids and smaller anemonies (glass roses). They never munched on the Acros or Montis. I didn't have them with LPS corals, though.
