I found some Acoel Flatworms walking, its not really a lot and I figured I better get rid of them while there arent many. Doesd FWE and I saw them run around for a hr and then did a 10% water change and threw in a lot of carbon. Just curious if this stuff also knocks out bristle worms and brittle stars?

the tanks just a 40G IM AIO

Be sure to siphon up Dead flatworms which can release toxins

Good to know, I don't have many flat worms from what I can see. I only see them if I look super hard and I usually only see 1 or 2. When I put in the FWE I saw a few more show up but that's it. I think I'm safe for the most part.
