    A couple of days ago, i noticed a flatworm on my hammer coral. I took the flatworm off the coral manually. Should I be expecting a hoard of flatworms to come?(Do they multiply quickly) I looked around the tank and I did not see any other ones so I was wondering what I should do? I could be...

    Hello everyone, I am trying to find out if these flatworms that have showed up in my refugium are dangerous. Both types don't seem to care about my zoanthids that are in here, they mostly just stay on this porous rock. One type is red and has a yellow or white spot and the other is reddish brown...

Well that stoped about a month and a half ago when I started noticing the tissue between my button polyp heads slowly disappearing.

    over the past 3 months I've been having a flatworm takeover.is there any fish or invertebrates that I could get to take care of my flat worm problem? Or do I have to manually remove the flat worms? Also any links or information on flatworms would be helpful also. Thanks so much in advance

    Don't Risk it! Dip it. Most reef tank owners do not have access to well-designed quarantine systems. Many times this leads to significant losses brought on by infestations. Dipping your corals in CoralRx provides a quick, safe and effective solution to minimize those risks. Coral Rx is not a...

    Had flatworms... HAD... I got a leopard wrasse from a friend and before that a mandarin dragonet and diamond gobie. Between the three of them, the worms have disappeared... My theory is that the wrasse and dragonet have been eating them off the glass and rocks respectively, while the gobie...

    I just turned around this morning and saw this on my glass. Did this -> :bigeek: Tank is over a year old, and this is the first time I've seen this guy. Given his flat, worm-like appearance I would guess it's a type of flatworm, but don't know what type or if I need to go hunting him down now...

    When I looked in the tank, I had an aptasia and a majano on the same rock. I immediately removed the rock. In my pest hunting mode, I started wondering about these white thread like worms I've got throughout the tank. Are these harmless?Thanks.

    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...

    Hello everyone! My tank has been set up for about 2 months and this appeared about a month ago. It doesn't seem to be flatworms and doesn't move if I touch it. It hasn't changed in form, shape, or size. It does seem to be slowly multiplying but not at a rate to be concerned with. Does anyone...

    I have a 28 gallon nano cube with coral and 3 fish. I recently noticed small round spots on the glass and back wall of my tank. They are about 2mm wide and move very slowly across the tank. I never actually see them move, but one day there are tons in one spot and the next day they're somewhere...

    I have a flatworm outbreak, I have a little issue decifering colors... these are either a brown or red. I haven't seen anyone writing about brown so I will assume that they are red. (quality of my digital camera is not good for these guys) All of my SPS are still o.k., my softies are ok, my...
