Neon orange flakes

I did a fresh water tip to the whole disc. I noticed a lot of algae in the area, and was told to do a fresh water dip. After the dip I noticed a bunch of these neon orange flakes on the rock. Any ideas of what this this?

Dip it again...dip it in something more potent like CoralRX. Those appear to be flatworms.

Thank you! Do these flat worms move around? They were all in the same place this morning.

They should, but slowly.
Is there blue actinic lighting on the tank? This could simply be algae that is that color because of that...though it doesn't seem like it from the picture.

Blues are on in both pics. They are small so it is hard to tell, but it appears that the flakes are leafy as the hang off the rock in some places. I pulled a piece off and it doesnt appear to be a flat worm. But it is orange under a regular house light.

Then it is an algae. I've had it show up in my tank similar, but not sure where it goes as it doesn't stick around in my tank.
