New tank flatworm and aiptasia

Just set up a new tank and after a few weeks, Had tested parameters and everything was good. Noticed a small aiptasia on my rock so I went out and bought a peppermint shrimp. The peppermint didn't eat the aiptasia after 3 days so I dropped in a little frozen brine shrimp which I saw him eat. Since then I haven't seen the pepp. Dropped in some more brine a few days ago but still no sign of him in over 5 days. Should I assume he is dead and stop feeding? I am thinking the tank may not have been fully cycled but lfs said that if the tests were good I shouldn't worry.

Aiptasia is still in the tank and also saw a pretty big flatworm roaming around last night.

Since the aiptasia is close to the edge of the rock I am thinking about chipping off the rock outside the tank and putting it back in, does this sound like a decent solution?

As for the flatworm, from what I read, was going to pick up some flatworm exit.

Please offer any advice. All will be appreciated.
