Salifert Flatworm eXit is a fluid for the fight against flatworms in sea water aquariums. Salifert Flatworm eXit itself is quite safe to fish and invertebrates. However, the body fluids of flatworms can be toxic to some reef inhabitants when present in a too high concentration. This body fluid is sometimes excreted when flatworms die.
So when you use Salifert Flatworm eXit it is important to do the following first:
1. Siphon out as many flatworms as possible.
2. Keep sufficient fresh activated carbon in a canister ready.
3. Turn off UV, ozone and remove activated carbon. Keep the skimmer turned on. Take sufficient time for treating the tank. That is, do not treat your tank in a hurry. Also take time to monitor your tank for at least 6 hours after the treatment.

The dose is 4 drops per 20 litres of aquarium water. Add it in a high flow area of the tank. If you want to treat a refugium only and if it’s volume is too small for using a powerhead then mixing should be done manually. It should start to work within 30 minutes. If within 45 minutes no visible death of flatworms occurs add 50% more. As soon as the flatworms start to die commence with the activated carbon to take out any toxic body fluids.
