    I have a 29 gallon tank that has a pair of clowns, some gobies, one chromie, one coral beauty, it has two polyp rocks, and has frags of coral, and unfortunately some aptasia that we are trying to get rid of.

    I know that the AEFW lay eggs but what about the regular flat worms? Do they multiply by splitting or do they lay eggs as well? I’m curious as I have never had a problem riding the regular flat worms with just one large treatment of flat worm exit.

    OK, some more ID help please. I found these unknown worms and thought they were Bristle Worms. But the consensus from the other thread is they are not not, but probably bad none the less. Possibly Euchnids Sp.?? So any help and removal idea's would be greatly appreciated. Thank-you Joe
