Acoel Flatworm
Image: Classification: Comments: Status:
Acoel Flatworm The acoel flatworm is a photosynthetic flatworm that can reach plague proportions. This is the main reason why they are undesirable, reaching plague proportions and smoothering sensile organisms such as corals. Another problem is that when they die, they release toxins into the water, which can make removing / killing them via chemical methods problematic. Some fish have a reputation for eating them, but it can vary between individuals whether they do or not. They tend to move slowly, but can move a significant distance in a hour or so. By observing closely, can see them glide over the surface and wriggle from side to side.

They are the devil to get rid of.

Those red planaria pictured are not a big deal, their populations rise and fall with their available food supply also. It's things like acropora eating flatworms that you have to worry about. These don't die off until their food supply (acropora) is gone

For the zoos fungus a ro water dip works great. Google it. Leave them in for a couple mins you can re dip if needed. I did one colony for 15 mins never had it again.
