    Nuh uh zero response ! I ordered through ebay instead, clearly flatworm isn't prevalent enough in sa to justify keeping it on the shelf . . . Or something !

    Sigh, not much change in the chemical warfare i'm afraid, between a striking postal service and a 2-3 week delivery period from the US I'm still waiting patiently. But actually the number of the buggers has decreased significantly, i got some brilliant advice about increasing flow to get rid of them and it really works. From what i've been told they are more of a symptom of poor flow than anything else, many tanks have them but because of good flow and predidation they are not seen or noticed. By directing flow into the areas where they used to hide out and breed i've pretty much skimmed them out of the system, the only area where they still seem to be thriving is in the chaeto over my dsb. I could do a RO dip to kill them from the chaeto but i have too much other life in there that i want to keep. Anyways, here's hoping the postal service get their 15% increase soon . . . .

    Ok guys..here's my take on this. Had friends over from the UK 2/3 weeks ago, brought this in for me it DOESNT WORK !.

    When I moved my old DT to my new one the temp in my holding cannisters dropped quite badly. After lifting the LR (with softies, LPS & SPS attached still) I was left wit a LOT of flatworms in the bucket.

    This has led me to believe that maybe just dipping your affected area in a low temp saltwater solution might do the trick.

    Dont know just an idea
