HEllo all,
Found this thing on a branch of frogspawn, very flat, some depth to it though, cant see any head or antena, and doesnt move too much.

It does look nudi to me also. I don't know of any nudi's that are detrimental to FS. The pic is very difficult to determine what type it is. How about just banishing it to your fuge?

If it is a flatworm, I'd be treating with FWE. Just because you see one, doesn't mean you don't have hundreds in your LR.

I dont have arcros, i know the tiny clear type is bad but are the big ones too.
i think it was a hitchhiker from the swap so it may be the only one for now
Will it hurt anything i have
SHOULD I TAKE IT OUT???

I dont want to worry about lilling them off later with fwe i have a 5 gal so i dont think it can take the toxins from the die off if there are many more in the tank

There is more than 1 type of flatworm; not all eat acropora corals. Read the info on the link I provided. That page also gives you more information on their control, reproduction and additional links of information.
