Corals attached to rocks like Zoa and Mushrooms is it safe to dip in Bayer?

Hello Everyone, wondering if people have dipped zoa's and shrooms that are attached to rocks in Bayer, I heard bayer can stick inside of the rocks and eventually go into your display tank. So far I have only been using bayer on frags that either have little bits of frag plugs on it, or that I completely remove the coral from the frag. However this method I can't purchase a variety of corals since lots of corals are attach to rocks and rubble. Im debating on possibly using bayer for corals on frag plugs that can be removed and Coral RX for corals that can't be removed from the rock/rubble. Any suggestions?

Yes i have dipped wild pieces of coral ive gotten that were attached to rocks in bayer. Just make sure yoi govd it a good rinse after. The amount of bayer that should remain after a rinse should be minimal and should dilute to negligible levels in your tank
