    My tank was getting overrun with flatworms a few months ago, but I had a horrid experience with Flatworm Exit. However, it did get rid of most of the flatworms except for the ones stuck to my long tentacle plate coral. I tried sucking them off with a baster originally, but damaged some...

    I just found a flat looking worm that is blackish with white spots. I managed to catch it with a turkey baster which is where I'm keeping it right now. I was wondering if anyone knows what this little guy is and if he is good or bad for my reef tank. I recently just acquired some macro algae...

    Does any body have any idea how to get rid of flat worms without flatworm Rx? Will a mandarin dragonette eat them? Currently there is a 6-line wrass in there which is supposed to only eat flat worms...but too many flat worms and they reproduce rapidly. Does any one have any ideas how to...

    I got some live rock out of a reef tank and it has some flat worms on the rock. I have heard that you can dip them in Iodine and that will get rid of them. Is this true. The rock has a lot of coraline on it so I would like to use it. If this doesn't work I may just have to kill the rock and...

    I have a bunch of these in my tank - what are they? They are approx. 2-4mm in length, blueish-black and they look like flatworms. They haven't bothered anyone I think, I have never really seen them on corals. Do I need to get rid of them and how...

    These came off my frogspawn after I dipped in Coral Rx... They were on most of my new corals. If they are flatworms, I am considering treating the tank with flatworm eXit.

    Hi everyone. About 10 days ago I added my first corals, some mushrooms. I have had decent coralline growth, all my hitch-hiker corals were doing quite well, and my parameters seemed ok so I thought I'd give it a shot. For the first week there was no problems, they all seemed fine. Then all the...

    Does anyone have any actual experience owning one of these? I have a 90gl with a flatworm issue and I'm interested in a natural predator to control them. I realise they only eat FWs and I was looking into raising FWs in a smaller tank just for the Blue velvet so it wouldn't starve down the road...
