So, if it is a flatworm, does anyone know if a mandarin will eat it? I really don't want to use anything if I don't have to. I only have a starburst polyp and a polyp rock, that's it.

Getting a mandarin won't guarentee it will eat them. If you are not wanting to put chemicals in, siphon as many as you can see and keep doing it.

If you spot them, i'd siphon it out. Check out what Melev did in his tank to get rid of them. www.melevsreef.com

Hi dc, fancy meeting you here!:wavehand:

Let me rephrase that. I have a mandarin, that grazes all day but eats mostly frozen foods, but tends to stay mostly in the back and very rarely out in front. I have been considering trying the dry food (mandarin diner), like Melev. So, I was thinking of doing a diner of sorts, but if I put it out in front where I am seeing these things maybe I could lure the mandarin out into the front of the aquarium more. Anyway, I read that mandarins will eat flatworms, but Melev states the target dragonet, so I am not sure if the green/blue mandarin will eat them and was wondering if anyone has heard that they will to.
