I had a recent proliferation of these planarian looking things. It almost looks like coralline algae on the live rock. They are flat and moving and reddish in color. Is this dangerous to a tank? It appears as red spot above the yellow tang in the picture. All the red spots on the live rock above the yellow tang are the planarian looking things.

Red Planaria. You can use Flatworm Exit, but make sure to follow the instructions and remove as many as you can before and during the treatment. They are toxic and if they all die at once and you don't remove them you may lose your fish.
