Salifert Flatworm Exit works on reef aquariums that have flatworm issues. Flatworms can consume corals and are usually found when new corals are introduced to the tank. When using Flatworm Exit it is necessary to follow the directions, as flatworms can produce a toxin in your aquarium after the treatment. Multiple treatments may be necessary as well.
Flatworm exit itself is quite safe to fish and invertebrates. However, the body juice of flatworms can be toxic to some reef inhabitants when present in a too high concentration. This body juice is sometimes excreted when flatworms die.
So when you use this product it is important to do the following first:
- Siphon out as many flatworms as possible.
- Keep sufficient fresh activated carbon in a canister ready.
- Turn off UV, ozone and remove activated carbon. Keep the skimmer turned on.
