    Sigh ....

    I seem to have all the luck, am I right in saying this is indeed a flatworm ? I don't have many, well, yet ....

    The little guys are about a millimeter long, and quite speedy for their size .....

    Lol ml, those are your buddies hey ! Luckily i've got zero livestock so if they go bos and breed i'll nuke them :) . . . Question is, are they present in a healthy tank as part of the ecosystem and only become a pest when allowed to get out of hand, or are they like aiptasia and need to be dealt with right away ?

    Since you don't have any livestock, starve them out.

    There are so few of them right now i'll be able to suck them out with my new anti hydroid weapon, a 20ml syringe with a size 22 needle attached . . .
