Salifert Flatworm Exit (Treats up to 300G)
Flatworm Exit itself is quite safe to fish and invertebrates. However, the body fluids of flatworms can be toxic to some reef inhabitants when present in a too high concentration. This body fluid is sometimes excreted when flatworms die.
So when you use this product it is important to do the following first:
1] Siphon out as many flatworms as possible.
2] Keep sufficient fresh activated carbon in a canister ready.
3] Turn off UV, ozone and remove activated carbon. Keep the skimmer turned on.
Below given remarks are a.o. meant to reduce the amount of the flatworm’s toxic body fluids in the water.
Many people have treated their reef tank(s) successfully using Flatworm eXit without any problems. The most important factors are reducing the number of flatworms before commencing with the treatment and reducing the amount of the flatworm’s body fluids, released when they die, as fast as possible.
Take sufficient time for treating the tank. That is, do not treat your tank in a hurry. Also take time to monitor your tank for at least 6 hours after the treatment.
It is also wise to have at least 25% water ready for a water change if required.
