Zoanthid eating flatworms?

My tutty-frutty frag were not opening in the past 10 days and the rest zoanthids too were partially closed, so I suspected I might have a parasite. I took them to a Bayer bath, and there were many small reddish-brown critters crawling out of them. They are about 0.1-0.15" long, have elongated bodies and looked to me like flatworms.
I took them under a microscope:

What are these? Shall I treat the whole tank with flat worm exit now?

My suggestion go to the invert forum and check with Leslie they can help ID it.

I don't know if that's the correct invert forum since RC looks different to me now since I left long ago.
