I got one a few months ago.

My flatworms tended to be on mushrooms and blend in very well.

Flatworm exit killed many of them......but not all.

The Nudi was way cool and hunted them nonstop for two days.......then it was GONE.

No little corpse.......never to be seen again......flatworms are all still there.:mad:

i have the same problem now, my flatworms are only on my mushrooms!! they are very bright blue so you can see the fw really good, i have a radiant wrasse and a purple velvet wrasse but they don't seem interested in the fw and i would rather not use fw exit. hopefully this works, they are really ****ing me off.

Yeah nudis dont last very long in captivity. Look into getting a green or yellow coris wrasse. My husband is getting a green one this weekend to take care of his flatworms. AND they are REALLY pretty!!

If they're only on the mushrooms then they probably aren't Convolutriloba, which is the problem flatworm species. There are several species of commensal flatworms, usually identitified as Waminoa, that live on mushrooms. They're harmless.

If you look at the tail of the worm Convolutriloba (the bad worm) has three points or "lobes" that Waminoa doesn't. You can see them in the picture from Charle's page.
