Salifert Flatworm Exit Information

Product Manuals & Documentation

Part #: SI035-4

Flatworm eXit itself is quite safe to fish and invertebrates. However, the body juice of flatworms can be toxic to some reef inhabitants when present in a too high concentration. This body juice is sometimes excreted when flatworms die.

So when you use this product it is important to do the following first:
  • Siphon out as many flatworms as possible.
  • Keep sufficient fresh activated carbon in a canister ready.
  • Turn off UV, ozone and remove activated carbon. Keep the skimmer turned on.
Important remarks

Below given remarks are a.o. meant to reduce the amount of the flatworm`s toxic body juices in the water.

Many people have treated their reef tank(s) successfully using Flatworm eXit without any problems. The most important factors are reducing the number of flatworms before commencing with the treatment and reducing the amount of the flatworm`s body juice, released when they die, as fast as possible.

Do not underestimate the number of flatworms in your system. In a few cases a significant number of flatworms can be hiding in, for example, crevices. Blow in such and any other potential hiding places, water, to blow any flatworm out of there. For that purpose you can use a powerhead or a turkey baster. Siphon out those flatworms as well.

Furthermore, do not underestimate the amount of toxic body-juices these flatworms can excrete. This can be reduced significantly by really siphoning out the flatworms before commencing with the treatment. Further significant reduction is accomplished by siphoning out as many dead flatworms as you can.

Any body juice released by the dead flatworms in the water has to be reduced further by using about 1 pound of fresh high quality carbon for every 50 gallons. The carbon has to be used in a canister with a sufficient forced water flow.

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.

It is also wise to have at least 25% water ready for a water change if required.

Dosage:

Read all the above text before commencing with the treatment!
  • 1 drop for every 4 liters or 1 gallon
    The dropper contains approx. 300 drops (10ml). The dropper cap holds approx. 90 drops. So 1 cap full is good for 360 liters or 90 gallons.

    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 juices. Also see the above given important remarks.
  • After an hour or so you can turn any UV or ozone on again.
Keep out of the reach of children! Only for aquarium hobby use.

Excellent!

Comments: The prescribed amount did the job with just one application. Follow the directions and you'll have no problems. Make sure you have fresh carbon.

Great, but follow instructions Product Review by JOEL CLARK (Posted on 2/26/14)

Excellent!

Comments: This product does a number on flatworms, but you must siphon out as many FW as you can, filter with carbon after use and do a large water change. You need to follow up in about 5-7 days with another treatment to get all the eggs that are not affected with the first treatment. If you follow directions and treat at least twice, it should do the trick.
