Fresh water dip????

Hi guys. I hope someone can help. I recently acquired some hairy mushroom frags. After about a month of having them, I noticed some flatworms on them. I'm 99% sure they are flatworms, and after close inspection am sure this is the only coral affected. I will be able to remove the frags for treatment. Is a freshwater dip the best thing to do? If so, how do I do it? Thanks in advance, Joel

I run shrooms under the tap ...A freshwater dip will not harm them..Shrooms are "almost" impossible to kill

Ok, mushie dipped in warm ro water, it's now back in the tank, and looks like it's spilling it's guts out. Is that right after the trauma? Cheers, Joel
