red planaria or good flatworms?


Recommended Posts

Ok, editing my original post. I gave my mushroom a freshwater dip and about 20 of these rust red flatworms came off of it.

Do I need to treat my tank for flatworms now? The only other coral I have in there are some yellow colony polyps. Will they go away on their own?

some say yes and some say no.


i am decidely on the NO side.


get rid of them NOW while you have very few of them and not many corals in your tank.


flatworm exit by salifert works good.

Read up on it. Not directly harmful, but they'll smother corals and they're toxic when they die. Some pseudos eat them, as do sixline and fourline wrasses.
