FLATWORMS!!! - Reef Tank Pest Control #2: How To Get Rid of Red Planaria

FLATWORMS!!! - Reef Tank Pest Control #2:
How To Get Rid of Red Planaria


We're back with episode #2 of our Reef Tank Pest Control Series! Be sure to check out the first installment if aiptasia anemones are overtaking your tank.

Today we'll be talking about another common reef pest: Red Planaria, more commonly referred to as flatworms, can irritate corals and consume detritus that could otherwise be available for more beneficial micro-fauna, such as copepods.

The biggest risk with flatworms is the toxin they release when they die. Some hobbyists report that mass flatworm die off actually led to their tank crashing. The good news is there are natural predators and chemical treatments that can help you get rid of those flat rust-brown creatures covering every surface of your aquarium. We'll show you how!
