    Flatworms can be toxic to reef life if they are allowed to flourish in an aquarium. Once established, they can reproduce quickly and will hide in any crack or crevice that they can find. In order to make sure the solution can work effectively use a power head or other device to flush them out of the hiding places, after which it is recommended to siphon out as many as possible. Flatworm Exit is harmless to all reef organisms, but extreme care must be taken when using this product because of the flatworm's toxic body juice. If the toxic body juice is left unchecked in the aquarium the possible loss of aquatic inhabitants is likely.
    To prevent this from happening siphon out as many flatworms as possible before treating the tank. After the treatment has been added to the aquarium siphoning as many dead ones as possible will further limit the problems that could arise. Once the siphoning is finished add approximately 1 pound of fresh high quality carbon for every 50 gallons to remove any remaining amounts of toxic juices. It is also wise to have water ready to do a 25% water change if required.

    Size:
    10 ml dropper bottle.
    Dosage: Four drops for every 20 liters or 5 gallons
    The dropper contains approx. 250 drops (10mL). The dropper cap holds approx. 60 drops. 1 capful is good for approx. 300 liters or 75 gallons. Add 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. Product should start to work within 30 minutes. If within 45 mins no visible death of flatworms occurs, add 50% more. As soon as flatworms start to die, commence with the activated carbon to take out any toxic body fluids. After an hour or so, you can turn on any UV or ozone again. Keep out of reach of children. The product is only for hobby aquarium use containing fish and animal and is not for consumption by humans or animals.
