Yes. I would thaw and lose the juice from the cubes before tossing them in also. They are froze in some pretty nasty water.

Ok I will start doing that. I have just been dumping them in the take after they are defrosted.

I also have a flat worm problem its not large yet but I notice them. I read they can cause problem fast. Do you have any recommendations on how to take care of them.

Thanks for all the help

What color are they? Red? if so they are common red planaria and their populations will rise and fall with the available food supply. I would just vacuum out what you can with water changes and not worry about them.

Yep. These are the same ones. They don't directly go after corals, but they seek light along with eating pods, and sometimes end up covering corals. Easily vacuumed off though.
