Sounds like Slow or Rapid tissue necrosis (STN or RTN). Can you get a pic?

Hmm... and now ALL your corals are dieing? Sounds more than coincidental. What is your pH?

well i finally treated its been 24hrs and no deaths! When it says do not underestamiate the number of worms in your tank they are not kidding! I followed the directions to the letter and did a 33% W/C and so far the ony things dead in my tank are those worms!! In the future i will put alot more effort into prevention!!!

I've had the flatworm problem too. I never tried flatworm exit because I was afriad of the toxins the would release. The method I had the best luck with was siphoning them out with a with a vinyl hose (like a gravel vaccume). I had to do it once a week for about three weeks because they multiply so rapidly. I also got a melanarrus wrasse but if you try getting rid of them by a fish, the fish isn't a guarentee that it will eat them and they may multiply faster than the fish would eat them. Good luck.
