    Rather get a six line wrasse, yellow wrasse, or green wrasse. I am not aware of any flatworm eating nudis. Nudi's are specialised algaevores, consuming the zooanthellae in coral.

    Thanks, got a six line wrasse, he is not making a dent in them, I heard that there is a purple nudi that only eats the worms

    Just bought some of it, but really hate putting poison in the tank, would love to control it naturally. I will use it as a last resort, problem is that my system is 6000l water cap and need a lot of medication.
