Flatworm Exit worked great for me just took multiple treatments.
I have had them for months, I have been scared to treat the tank with flatworm exit so I have just been siphoning them out once a week during my water changes. I find their population is not getting out of control so I have just incorporated the siphoning into my weekly maintenance. I have actually come to derive pleasure from siphoning them lol..I like getting the airline close to them and seeing them get sucked away.
yes: I have used it once to get rid of some planaria and AEFW. It killed all of them in one dose almost immediately and also irritated a lot of my other invertebrate organisms such as starfish, amphipods, and small stars.
All fish and coral were not effected by the levamisole, but they did react negatively to the flatworm toxins. Some acros browned out but there were no losses.
As for the AEFW, I caught them almost immediately as i added them. I spent time scraping the eggs and kept a close eye on my corals so one treatment was enough. The planaria were not my primary reason for treating, however I knew they would also die. I did not have high numbers but i still saw some squirm out of the rocks and sand. One treatment was enough.
I recommend keeping around 50% mixed saltwater on hand incase the flatworms release toxins so you can do a water change to reduce the neurotoxins.
Do you have a recommended dosage amount?
not off the top of my head... but try searching google, you will be able to find a recommended dosage. Honestly, it is very small per gallon
