Get a six-line wrasse...they are natural predators of flatworms, I believe.

I tried all kinds of natural solutions (fish & nudis) but ended up having to use flatworm exit. I followed the directions exactly and haven't seen a flatworm in seven months.

If its not got too much of a problem try syphoning them out, before trying any chemicals.
