FWE Kill Pods?
I discover red flatworms in my refugium area tonight.I cant see any in DT but if there are in fuge then I'm sure they're in DT.
Not a happy reefer!
I added some cheato a few weeks ago and thats probably when they were introduced.
Its been awhile since I've had to deal with them.So is Flatworm Exit is still the preferred treatmnet?
Also does FWE kills all the good critters(pods) that I finally have in fuge?

He has a fuge...wrasse cant kill them all. Also 6line is a super aggressive fish that ends up being mean and kills other fish..bad recommendation.

FWE does not kill pods. Just follow directions and do the required water change(s) bc FW release toxins when they die and a large dieoff from FWE could cause major problems.

Thanks for the response.
Being that the concentration appears to be i fuge area,would it be bad idea to dose in fuge?
allowing it to slowly disfuse into Dt.

I hate chemical treatments. If the flatworms are in the fuge, take it off line and treat it. Off the top of my head I don't know the egg cycle, but you will have to keep it off line and keep treating untill the next generation is gone. You may have caught it in time. I would use a halochoeres vr. in the dt.

You can clean out your sump and fuge and put it back online and introduce a malanarus wrasse or some springer damsels ( these damsels are cute and non aggressive) and throw that chaeto away !!
