What is this?

Ever since I put GARF grunge in my tank I have noticed little brown bugs all over my class cleaning it. They kind of look like the ghosts that pac-man ate in the video game. They are oval with a cut out on the bottom like this



Is this bad or good or what? Should I call up GARF and ***** at them for what they put in my tank? PLease let me know.

Thanks,
Josh

Looks like flatworms.
You'll want to get rid of them. I've heard flatworm exit works well.

I had a flatworm problem and flatworm exit worked great. You will need to put a rush on getting rid of them because the reproduce very quickly. I got my flatworm exit from marine depot and it was pretty cheap.
