    Thumbs up Flatworms

    well i went away for the the weekend.. and i came home to find my tank at 84 D...

    anyhow i noticed almost all my glass is covered in flatworms.. weill there fast moving and small will a bubble type head with 2 little tails.. 100k of them lol.. none i notice on rocks or corals just on glass..

    they are some what light brown/orange color.. and tiny.. some are whitish/clear..

    kinda looks like this but a little more brown/red.. but the shape is dead on!!

    Am i in serious trouble??

    This is a good thread that tells you the difference between good and bad flat worms - http://www.reefcentral.com/forums/sh...hreadid=280572

    Your picture does not appear to have "The major characteristic for the small "plague" flat worms is the presence of the tail end with 3 lobes or bumps."
