Trying to get some help with an ID on some flatworms that just made an appearance in my system. Never had flatworms before up until today. I got a new acropora colony from my LFS yesterday and am now noticing a handful of them on my glass so I'm assuming they rode in on that acro. They are all under 3mm with a forked tail, brownish in color but i dont see the spotted pattern that ive seen on photos of AEFW. Most are 1-2mm so it was really pushing my camera to get some pics and a short video. Ive already panicked and have flatworm exit on the way and am planning on treating my tank this Wednesday when it shows up. Luckily all my fish are out of the system so I should not have to worry too much about toxins being released and harming livestock when I dose the flatworm exit.

Here are some photos let me know what you think.

acoel flatworm… they populate fast but not really a problem
Thank you. Got into a panic when I noticed them. Still going to try and kick them later this week so I dont have any ongoing uncertainty
 

Does it matter to you whether your fish are captive-bred or wild caught?
