flatworms have taken over

Crap. So my flatworm discovered here seems to have brought his friends with him. Now they've eaten all my copepods! In fact, 3 out of 5 times when I look at what I think is a copepod, it turns out to be a tiny flatworm instead. My LFS couldn't tell me anything to get rid of them, so I guess I'll have to hope they all starve, and then add more copepod-bearing live rock?

My hydroids are also flourishing. Curse my thriving tank!

Thanks a lot for that article, those are exactly what I have...I didn't realize they would release toxins if they all starve at once. Better start siphoning them out. :|
