    I really don't know of any way to get rid of them naturally, i.e. with predators etc. Someone else may. If possible, just pick it off. You can try dipping the coral in a coral dip (or maybe a solution of iodine). I'm sure there's lots of info about this topics. Sorry I can't be of much help.

    if it is a flatworm- dose the tank with Flatworm exit- the sooner the better- if you only have a few in the tank, you'll see no adverse effects from the treatment. But if you wait until you have a whole bunch, then you will have to do major water changes and run tonnes of cabon etc etc after treating as the toxins from the dying flatworms can really hurt your tank animals.
