Hey reefers,

I need an ID on flatworms from a new coral order.
It’s most likely acropora eating flatworm or euphyllia eating flatworm.

All I got was two acro frags and a Aussie gold torch single head. Not from a r2r member.

thank you so much!

Here’s any sort of markings I could find on the acros.. look like bites or no?

thanks everyone I’ve never flatworms in my current system due to strict QT and sourcing.

Need better pics. The bite marks will look like a tightly grouped bunch of circles. Turn your whites on and hold the frag up to the glass.

I ended up throwing the acros away.... is there anyway to ID with the picture of the worms? Or is that not possible?

thanks everyone.
