I have these in my tank, but they seem very different than the photos of typical red planaria. Does anyone know whether these are flatworms or not? And if so, are they harmless? Thanks.

You missed one key natural solution. The blue velvet nudibranch only eats flatworms. View attachment 33670

interesting and may have been very well fed in my tank i've had moments of literal mats of the red planaria, btu weekly water changes, the blue sapphire damsel, and making to to suck up the planaria with the water changes has helped a lot
