Just remember, you going to create a lot of die off..... so you know what that means..... nitrates, be prepaired beforehand to make a large water change if need be, or you might have more than floating worms.

Well if you make it down to Springfield we have 4 boxes in stock. We have pretty much quit taking corals from individuals and if we do take anything in we dose it with the Flatworm exit just to be on the safe side.

well the down side about flatworm exit is that it will kill the hatched one, but if you have eggs, flatworm exit wont help. so if you use flatworm exit it will do the trick for a while, but they will apear again in few weeks, so you need somethign that eats them,like blue-striped tailed se slug, they are cheep, but hard to get. good luck.

It is always a good idea to do a second treatment after about two weeks just to make sure you got all the little buggers. There is much less risk in using the treatment the second time because if there are any flatworms there won't be many.

I think these flatworms reproduce by fission. I could be wrong though.

you are correct and as suggested id do a second treatment to be safe.
