    It’s 12 AM, you look into the tank...your worst fear?

    I HAVE FLATWORMS!! Good or bad kind??

    Hey everyone, I have a 5 gallon reef setup and have some small brown flatworms. I don't have a ton so I'm looking for something, preferably an invert, that can live comfortably in the tank and help control or eradicate the flatworms. Any suggestions?

    Unique flatworm ID

    Hi, I just started finding these flatworms in my tank. They are normally on my live rock and not on coral. They have a hard texture, with a pattern on their back. Does anyone know what specie of flatworm they are, and if they’re something I should be worried about? thanks in advance!
