Flatworm issue

I was wondering if anyone has had the following happen:
I found that I have flatworms in my 20 gal reef tank, no fish. I siphoned out as many as possible, removed my carbons, and used Flatworm Ex. I waited an hour and had success. I did a 5 gal water change. However, a few days later, I had more flatworms. I did another treatment 1 week later. Now, each day I'm siphoning out another 50 or so flatworms. Am I doing something wrong? After 2 treatments, I would have thought I would have eradicated them all. I'm wondering if I need to do ANOTHER treatment this week. The other concern is aphasia is popping up, but I don't want to add peppermints into the environment due to the flatworm treatments. If I were to take the plunge and get a wrasse or a filefish to (hopefully) eat the flatworms, might the poison kill them as well?
I'm very confused.
