Flatworm eXit itself is quite safe to fish and invertebrates. However, the body juice of flatworms can be toxic to some reef inhabitants when present in a too high concentration. This body juice is sometimes excreted when flatworms die.

So when you use this product it is important to do the following first:

  • Siphon out as many flatworms as possible.
  • Keep sufficient fresh activated carbon in a canister ready.
  • Turn off UV, ozone and remove activated carbon. Keep the skimmer turned on.
    • 1 drop for every 4 liters or 1 gallon
      The dropper contains approx. 300 drops (10ml). The dropper cap holds approx. 90 drops. So 1 cap full is good for 360 liters or 90 gallons.

    • Add it in a high flow area of the tank.
    • It should start to work within 30 minutes.
    • If within 45 minutes no visible death of flatworms occurs add 50% more.
    • As soon as the flatworms start to die, commence with the activated carbon to take out any toxic body juices.
    • After an hour or so you can turn any UV or ozone on again.
