Euphyllia eating flatworm control

Anyone ever battled these pests before? Got a couple frags from friend and didnít dip because they looked great. Lost a torch shortly after that and noticed one on it when I removed. I have been dipping torches when they look stressed. Bought 6 lined wrasse, may or may not be helping. Tried flatworm exit, didnít work. Any Sucess stories would help. Thanks.

Link to thread on them and picture if you havenít seen one before.

I had this too, but caught it just in time. I threw my torch out - itís skeleton was covered in eggs.

Keep your eye on other LPS and your snails. They hunt at night, so use a torch to search for them and remove them manually.

People with bad outbreaks set traps and manually remove them at night.

Have you tried dipping your corals in Bayer pesticide (the same Bayer used when dipping SPS)?

That is what I have been doing. Every time I find fewer flatworms. Hard lesson to learn to dip everything coming into tank.
