Are these flatworms?

Recommended Posts

I just got in my red gracilaria macroalgae that ai ordered from eBay. I did a quick freshwater dip and there were these strange looking things that came off. Are these flatworms? I’m really scared of putting the macro in my display tank (decorative macroalgae) and introducing pests. Thanks!

The shape of some of them definitely resembles a flatworm. There sure are a lot of them so try to use another dip to make sure you get them all before introducing into your main tank.

Would RO/DI dips be enough to remove all of the flatworms from the coral? How long should I dip the macro for?
