I got some HUGE corals from a local and they have tons of flatworms all over and the corals are currently in a bucket of water. What can I use to kill the flat worms? Will Iodine Lugol's Solution work? How much do I add per gallon(s)?

Don't have any and all the LFS are closed right now. I do have 3 wrasses in my tank, Yellow Coris Wrasse, Fairy Wrasse, and Cirrhilabrus cyanopleura Wrasse. They eat them up right? I'll scrub them all off the coral and add it to the tank? Good idea? lol

I dipped the corals several times and cleaned the corals off, not a single flatworm. :)
