Anyone ever find planaria (flat worms) on one of their hammers?  I have some on one of mine, I do have some flatworm exit I'll use, just wanted to see if this is unusual/common?

Those are not too harmful and don't get out of control or look so bad like the smaller red-brown ones. I know of a beautiful tank that has had those for years. They have never grown to plague proportions like the others do.

I've used flatworm exit a few times with good results, and have done the 1/2 dose method as well.

I'm more interested in opinions on whether the flatworms are going to cause my coral grief? 

Or should I just ignore them and figure all will be good?
