They are bad. They irritate lps coral and cause it to retract. I believe they eat the slime that the corals excrete. I had them and treated with Flatworm Exit. Need to pull your carbon and follow directions exactly. Make sure you syphon the dead/dying worms because if you leave a lot of dead flatworms in your tank they release a toxin.

Ok as of today I have only seen/found 5! As soon as I find them I have been sucking them out with just a small tube and syphoning, may seem a little pain in the butt, but it's working!

Should things get out of control, treatment is definitely still on the table!
