Flatworm eXit
Manufactured by Salifert
Flatworm eXit is a fish and invertebrate safe product capable of eradicating most common types of parasitic planaria (flatworms). However, the body fluids of the flatworms killed with the treatment can be toxic to aquarium inhabitants. To ensure minimal effects of the toxic fluid on the inhabitants it is recommended that a siphon be used to remove as many flatworms as possible prior to treatment.
Prior to dosage, it is recommended that all UV sterilizers and ozonizers are turned off. Any activated carbon in the system should be removed. It is recommended that the protein skimmer remains operational throughout treatment.
