    So my LFS is having their annual 50% sale. They get about 2x the stuff in and sell almost everything over the weekend. During this, they have a no-hold policy, so I couldn't have them hold anything. My dilemma is that I am finishing my flatworm exit treatment. First treatment cut the population...

    How much toxin do flat worms release when they die. Currently I have some flatworms in my system. They are mostly on my fuzzy mushrooms but I am starting to see a few here and there on my other corals. I just noticed them the other day. There does not seem to be any damage being done to any...

    I just got home and I noticed a small spot of what appeared to be coraline algae on my front glass. I though to my self that happened fast. I hit it with the mag float and it shrivled up and morphed back into shape. I think it is a flat worm. Then I noticed 2 more on the glass and there are 2...

    Good morning all, SO I will get straight to it. Last night I had 5 Red Planaria expose them selves. I was able to just siphon them out. Here is the question, Is it safe to assume there are more? And if so should I treat my column while I do not yet have an infestation? I have had issues in the...

    Guys I'm planning to use Flatworm Exit to rid my dozens of zoa colonies of nudis. Has anyone done this before? I'm just looking to see if I should be doing the recomended dose or 1.5-2x dose to kill these pests. This is pretty much the last offsensive strike I have short of removing the large...

    I have noticed today this brown like crap on my corals. One my Montipora digi, and the other my aussie delicate. So I took them down to the lab and put them under the scope. I am not sure whats happening here but its like a layer of skin is coming off the coral. Didn't notice any parasites...

    Ok, Just picked up some trochus snails. I wondered if anyone has any recommendations for a dip that is "snail safe". After a few members getting pests from snails a while back, I want to take zero chances. I do have some tropic marin pro coral cure, but I wonder how safe it is on inverts.

    So i just recently discovered that what i thought was some kind of algae forming is actually red flatworms. They aren't hurting anything in my tank but it is an eye sore. I just began siphoning them out and i was wondering if using flatworm exit is reef safe. I know that when they die they...

    well, after a long battle and still losing badly, i am trying something new, the Bergia nudibranches. kalk paste, joes juice and stop aptasia always seems to leave a little of the cursed things left to regrow, and to make matters worse my mystery wrasse and long nose hawk love shrimp:doh: so i...

    So I have heard that a yellow coris wrasse will eat flatworms. I have a small infestation (thus far). My question is do I use flatworm exit and risk the deadly death juice? Or do I try a wrasse?

    Ok...so the thread isn't locked yet...I guess that means I can still sneak this in??? My wife (Pinky70, just signed her up) is getting a used 12G cube tonight. She was originally thinking about just putting freshwater in it, but after looking around at LFS I think she has decided to go reef...

    I read the thread on how to treat them, but it seems that it's really only an issue if you have Acro in your tank. My nano is primarily LPS and softies. I was at the LFS today and picked up some CUC, as well as a frag of Montipora and a frag that contains a mix of softies (readily identifiable...

    I am posting this not to say Salifert FWE is a bad product but to warn anyone else that may be considering it's use to be extremely cautious :read: I HAD a very beautiful 200 gal softie and LPS tank last friday. I have suspicions as to where I got the flatworms but they are now out of biz so I...

    Well, I've got a 55g tank sitting empty on a stand, but since I've never kept saltwater fish before, I thought I'd invest minimal cash at the outset and see how things go and try out some ideas before I go whole hog and buy the gear for the 55 and do up a sump, etc. So, I decided to throw my...
