Hello Reefers, I wanted to share my experience with a product to remove Flatworm in your tank. I documented a little bit of the reaction on different corals also. If there anyone who uses this product before let me know if it worked for you.
Good Afternoon Everyone, I have a few of these yellow/blue looking worms on the aquarium glass. I have done the internet search and made best efforts to narrow down what Worm/Larvae these possibly could be. I am leaning towards flatworm at the moment but can only identify a rounded head u like the shovel shape of a planarian. My sixline is picking at things from the rockwork as usual but I haven’t seen him go for anything on the glass yet. Has anyone experienced these little critters before or have any idea what they are before I go and dump chemicals into the system to fight flatworms?
Kinda sucks this is my first post on a forum I lurk almost daily on. but anyways, I noticed with my first 2 corals I have bought (a pulsing xenia & GSP) that one is doing great and the other looks like it's been receding. My xenia is growing and doing really nice so I wont talk about that one, but instead on my GSP. I know that you have to give a coral some time to acclimate to the tank and leave it alone. and afaik sometimes with GSP it can look pretty bad before bouncing back. well I decided to look at it more closely and i saw this white flatworm move in some of the crevices. I decided a freshwater dip would be best for about a minute, but besides the amphipods it didnt want to come off, I manually used my aquascaping tongs to reach into the coral and pull the flatworm out. well after putting the coral back into the tank, i must have agitated the flatworms, because i have pulled another two off the coral. tank specs to best of my knowledge size: 10g 2.5 months old 1.025 ppt salinity 0 ppm ammonia 0 ppm nitrite 0 ppm nitrate ~180 ppm kh 2 20" stingray LED on timer chaeto refugium AC 20 sponge filter 1 occ clown & TSB 3 electric blue hermits 1 trocus snail ~ the question is, can I have an ID on this flatworm? I searched online and this forum but cannot find anything that looks like it. And if anyone knows what it is can they tell me if they are beneficial or parasitic? could this be the reason my GSP is not doing well? Thanks ahead of time for the replies,
