    Flatworms

    Post by alexwbush on Tue Jun 12, 2012 12:28 am

    So I just learned a painful lesson... don't buy rock from someone if you haven't seen it in the tank. I now have flatworms and aiptasia... awesome. I am continuing to battle the aiptasia (it's not too bad, yet). But these flatworms are really bugging me. I am thinking I will go with flatworm exit unless anyone has any better suggestions.

    I heard interceptor will help if you can get a vet to prescribe it for you. Maybe you can get the navy veterinarian to hook you up.

    Damsels. One blue damsel will rid the tank. flatworm exit is not really a great choice, interceptor is also not great as both kill lots of invertebrates and bacteria.

    I might have a hard time keeping a damsel alive with my clown being super aggressive around the anemone (which is like half the tank)

    I had a six line for a year that went MIA. Suppose I could get another if they'll target flatworms.

    in my experience wrasses do not do the trick. I have a pretty big blue damsel that I know eats flatworms since I had them a ways back and used him to get rid of them. If you are interested, he is quite aggressive and I have had him for 3+ years. Hit me up. The only other fish I have ever had luck with getting rid of them is the mandarin, but they are hit and miss and very fragile.
