    I have managed to get an infestation of what appears to be red planaria. See photo below. Anyone with experience combating these have any info/guidance? My tank is completely covered. I have been siphoning like a mad man. I'm not too enthused with the flatworm exit. That where I am hoping you...

    I've had a recent infestation of flatworms all over my tank. So far I've been lucky not to have them on any coral they've mostly just been on the rocks and on the sand bed. I've read that certain nudibranches eat them but the blue neons are hard to find down here and I'm not sure they would be...

    After leaving my lights off over the weekend, the algae has seemed to disappeared (for now at least), but now I've got these little white spots crawling all over the glass. After researching some, I think they are brown flatworms, but I'm not 100% certain. And if they are, how many can I have...

    I have had tiny flatworms for a few months (not the regular big easy to see red or green ones). These guys in adult stage are very hard to see. Babies are just teensy tiny... I tried flatworm exit to no avail. I have been dipping all my coral in melafix and moving to new clean tanks to try...

    hey y'all... so bummed... even with my coral dipping efforts it appears my last batch of SPS I bought came with flatworms. My SPS tank has been rapidly dissolving and I thought it was because I just moved and the water parameters were off or something but upon closer inspection, I now know I...

    I recently (a week ago) bought a frogspawn frag ($40). When i bought it, it looked healthy and pretty big, almost the size of my fist. And then when i brought it home, i put it in my 10 gallon quarantine tank to let it sit for a few weeks. I noticed its purple skin that coats the outside of the...

    So I had a very nauseating experience over the weekend. Robert and I were traveling and I went into two LFS in the area we were in to look. Because of the schedule I could have gone back just before heading for home to get something if I really wanted it. Of course they had a whole bunch of...

    Got a lot of little orangish brown flatworms all up in the lighted area of my tank... have been trying to remove them with a syringe but is there anything that loves to snack on them (besides a goby or a wrasse?) I already have a mandarin and a leopard wrasse on order. Cheers, Eric

    I have hundreds/thousands of tiny flatworms all over the glass in my 40g, i have always dipped my new corals before adding them to the tank, i think they came from some cheato I bought from my LFS. I have already treated the tank TWICE with flatworm exit but they keep coming back tenfold within...
