    Looks like a flatworm

    And flatworms are generally not what we want in our tanks.

    Can syphon them out of there only a few
    Certain wrasses will also eat them

    Thanks guys, bought a Green Coris wrasse, which hopefully will do the trick.

    Don't leave all the work to the fish,
    Help it out by syphoning it out and get as much out as you can.

    If they reproduce quicker than the wrasse eats them, you're going to be in trouble.

    These guys will smother and kill your coral, take over the tank in no time...

    Tnx. I’m doing just that. At this stage, it seems to be a light infestation and I can siphon them out when I see them.
