I found this flat worm in my aquarium tonight. I have never seen one like this and was wondering how bad it was, so I know what I am up against? Thanks.

I've never seen one like that, probably wouldn't worry too much

Well, I ended up disposing of it. Good or bad I wasn't taking a chance.

So I thought I would update this since i'm pretty sure i know what it is now... its the offspring of a polyclad flatworm:twised: And I wouldnt of found this guy without the help off my sixline wrasse.

this was best pick i could get of it in my overflow when I first seen it

I waited for an hour after the lights went out to let him get mobile, then i was able to scoop him up. this is him residing in a breeder box in my sump till i figure out what i want to do with him.https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5559/14523712565_c5266f1202_c.jpg (https://www.flickr.com/photos/111849698@N08/14523712565)

How long is it?

that flatworm/nudibrunch look legit to me, I would try to breed it to see what it becomes, but its good that you disposed it, dont risk it.
