Just recently had what I would call an outbreak of these little rectangular brown somethings in my tank. They accumulate on the rock and rock not so much on the sand. Some are more static than others some glide kind of like a snail without a shell across the glass.

Can anyone help ID please?

If you want to eliminate them without chemicals, wrasses may work, especially the 6 line.

I have a Blue Star Leopard wrasse that spend all day hunting for tasty little treats. It took him all of a week to rid my 120DT of them.

A six line would be my LAST CHOICE because they are just plain nasty.

These rust color flatworms are unsightly but harmless. Search here and you get plenty of account on how various people deal with them.
