Friend or foe?

I had to treat for flatworms and I took my refug apart because the plants were covered. When I put it back together the rock I have in there is now in a different spot and I could see different things.... What is this growth on the rock? Is it good or bad?

Can I grab it with my hand or should I use tweezers?

Use lemon juice or aiptasia-x to kill it.

Don't use your hands - they sting. And don't use tweezers. It will just cause it to spread.

I use boiling lemon juice in a med dropper to kill it. You can also use aiptasia X which most stores that carry Sw gear will sell.

But is using lemon juice a good idea with everything else in the tank?

A few drops at the mouth of the anemone isn't going to affect your tank.....

Sure in moderation. Adding a few mLs is fine.

Peppermint Shrimp will clear your tank. You may have to use something on the largest ones like Joe's Juice or lemon juice.
