Levamosole Is THE KEY!!!! It is the same as FWE but in the original concentrated form, and a fraction of the price, use it one time and your problem will be GONE period! I have plenty left and will gladly give you some, I live in South Jordan 90th S and 40th W area Call me

try a target mandarin, it's natural & they will get fat on them, plus a nice bonus with a great looking fish, mine has been in my system for years!

A big thing to do is dip your coils in a dip to prevent them in the first place! I learned this lesson the hard way as well. Now nothing goes in my tank with out a dip first no matter who I get it from.

Laynframe, What do you "dip" them in first? How does that process work? I haven't seen a lot of worms in my tank but I did see a HUGE one today..Good 3 inches wide...  who knows how long... I tried grabbing him but he was on my lr and he just retreated.

A huge flatworm can be harmless. Is it eating coral?

There are preventive dip medications made just for this purpose. Flatworms can be disposed of in several ways, including a quick one minute dip and swish in tapwater or a longer dip in levamisole medicated saltwater.

Coral RX is what I use, and it always amazes me what comes off corals that you never saw before. I know Aquatic dreams sells it. Its about 25 bucks but its cheap insurance you dont get anything from someone else. Kinda like std's of the reef world lol.

So I have read of people doing a fresh water dip.. can you guys explain how this works? If you dip coral or your live rock in fresh water wont it also kill your coral and other good stuff on the rock?

Thanks Guys

Yes, a one minute dip in fresh water will kill all the flatworms, even the good ones. I probably shouldn't have mentioned the freshwater dip. I do it in certain circumstances only.

FWE is great. As others have said if you have a large population do smaller dose to kill a portion of the FW and then do the full dose later. You should always try to suck out as many as you can by hand before you use FWE. As stated before the decomposing FW are what is toxic. If you reduce their numbers before dosing, you reduce the toxins you have to remove after.
