yup those are flatworms and the bad kind. i'll start to get some FWE probably a six line wrasse to lower the population. those a mean little critters, when did you start noticing them? what was the most recent coral you introduced?

I'll probably just get a six line, I don't remember how long ago 2 weeks maybe a month, the newest coral was the green welso but before that the only thing I could think of would be the xenia I traded Ahanix, hope he doesn't have them, most of the other corals came out of my other tank and I haven't noticed any on anything especially my tri-color acro or eagle eye zoas
and the green welso was added yesterday
