    those look like flatworms
    there are 2 ways to remove, with additives or wrasses/shrimps

    if you can take it out, 1L of tank water, with 5ml iodine for 10min or get TLF Coral Revive or CoralRx
    discard tank water after use

    Nope not only on coral. I do take that those wrasse are reef safe?

    My tank is now 7 months.
