Planaria (platyhelminthes), also known as turbellaria or flatworms, are unwelcome in an aquarium, some of which can even pose a threat to nursling fish. Owing to their nocturnal lifestyle, the presence of these pests quite often goes completely unnoticed. These animals can multiply in huge numbers, which can ultimately result in an infestation. In fresh water aquaria their victims include molting shrimps, small shrimps and their offspring, but also weak animals, juvenile fish and eggs. Flatworms can also live in marine water aquaria, however, large numbers of which can cause damage to corals and other animals. Virtually all available chemical additives not only harm the planaria, but also the sensitive residents of an aquarium. The Planaria X removes these pests from the aquarium reliably and without using any chemical additives. Attracted by the bait provided, the planaria crawl into the trap through one of the 8 openings and cannot escape again owing to the special design. Frozen foods such as Bloodworm, Brineshrimp & Mysis all work well as bait.
