I would wait a couple days and treat again. A small handful isn't going to hurt anything. Just keep the carbon running for the ones that did die off.

I was told to go by the direction and I did:
The Flatworm Exit instructions say to use 1lb of high quality carbon per 50gal

This is high quality carbon price:

I was just trying to go by the directions is all.
Ah, thanks, I wasnt thinking about the FW exit instructions, I was focused more on the carbon. I understand what you were saying now. :)

Getting ready to do a full bottle dose and get rid of these flatworms for good.
I have seen like 5 or 6 on the glass down near the corners so not many. I have a feeling they were on the coral pretty bad because it seems that my polyp extension is way better than usual.

Added 2 full bottles of flatworm exit so far today and the ones near the sand moved a lot then just stopped and some fell off but some are still there just not moving at all. It's been 45 min on the second bottle.

I did some research and then talked with some people in the know of things like this.
The consensus among these people was not to worry at all as these are "ghost flatworms" and actually a good thing;Woot
They feed on copepods and will not smother or bother coral like the red planaria will.
I can also say they are pretty much immune to flatworm exit and not to waist your money trying to kill the good guys.
I really hope this can help someone in the future not have the sense of worry and panic that I had.
