Guys,

I have a friend that has a flatworm problem in his tank
He wants to know if anyone has extra or left over
Salifert flatworm exit...

he would trade you for some red slime control (medication)
(he has plenty of it)

thanks,

Felix-

damn, out of 66 people (views) no one has any flatworm exit? I'll give a couple of red mushrooms to whoever has any to spare.... miami area.

Sorry dude. no FWE here either... I'd be weary of using it too. It's aways best to take care of it (relatively) naturally too if you can. A sixline or other wrasse should take care of most of them. If not, siphoning them out and doing lots of water changes should help. If I remember correctly, you only get flatworms when there is an abundance of nutrients.

Marine biological diversity with a ecosystem balance ,it's my theory :)

The Six Line Wrasse will search for live foods in the form of small crustaceans such as pyramidellid snails (clam parasites), urchins, and commensal flatworms. The Six Line Wrasse is also known to feed on unwanted pests on live rock, such as bristleworms.

You or he may THINK they're lazy, they're very active at night (as most shrimp are). My cleaner shrimp have a whole night shift thing going on, working on my Pajama Cardinals (also active at night).

I would rather take care of these pests with a natural predator, but they're animals, you cant rely on them to do what you want. Has anyone had a bad experience with this particular chemical? If I do decide to go with a six-line, will it get along with my Bi-color Blenny, Purp- Firefish, and YWG? I'd like to have 5 fish in my BioCube 29. The last fish being an Atlantic Chalk Bass.
Blenny, Flame Goby, YWG, six-line, Chalk Bass ?? The 3 fish I have now get along great, There are lots of hiding spots in my cube. Anyone, have any suggestions?
