Dremel tool with the flexible extensìon, use the circle saw blade and cut the pipe an inch or two higher and repeat until it extends about 1/4 of the depth of the tank. By cutting in small increments there is a good chance of flushing them without blocking the discharge pipe. FWIW
The pipe to be cut is 3".
The pipe you would try to flush the cutoff piece thru is also 3"

That isn't gonna work.

It will probably plug up the dump valve section .

Sounds like a good way to trade one problem for another.

With that much opening can you do 4 vertical cuts with a long keyhole saw then make the circumference cuts? If so they should pass the outlet. A wet vac hose would fit in the dump pipe and might be able to pull them out. Alternatively if they don't bounce too far out of the vertical drop one might get them from the top.
Agreed that two quarters is probably the limit to trust to flow so the procedure would be tedious but, is that worse than the current problem? Good luck
