[Coral-List] Acropora flatworm pest

A buddy on Majuro who propagates captive coral from
fragments is suffering from flatworm-induced mortality
(the animal is transparent, brownish, grows up to 5 mm
x 2 mm in size).  

Are there any treatments other than iodine that will
kill or detach flatworms from living coral, without
harming the coral?
