I ordered some Morning Glory Zoanthids from aquarium depot, I'm new to coral and I was super excited to get these, but upon inspection I noticed really big brown (polyanthids?) polyps mixed in with them. Is there a way I can possibly get them off my frag so my little zoas can I guess do better than what they are?

Protopalythoa, or just Palythoa. You could possibly get them off, maybe break that plug in the right places.
That's what I thought, my poor little zoas look like they are getting over powered by the dang things.

Zoas and palys are usually fine growing together, but larger polyps can out compete smaller or shorter types.
