Well established reef system. Got a shipment of dwarf Cerith snails in and I think I got these hitch hikers along with them. I know they are flatworms and normally white ones I had in the past did no harm but, they were bigger. These are tiny , 2-3 mm long and under blues and white light, they have a brownish body with a blue head. Just white light… they look white. Need I be concerned? While a 6 line take care of them? Thanks!

Most pest eating wrasses and scooter dragonnetes should eat these. I have no clue what type they are but there are things that should eat them right up.

Sure, a six-line will probably take care of them. The downside is that because six-lines are potentially very nasty towards other fish, you'll have to deal with that sometime down the road. Catching one can be a chore. My go-to is a Lepopard wrasse (or pair) Not only are they gorgeous fish, they love little morsels like that, and are excellent reef inhabitants.
