how to treat flatworms

So I went against my better judgement and plopped a moss ball in my breeder bow and now I have these worms all over my tank. How do I get rid of them? I have the dog dewormer. Will that work? Looks like the pic below. They really creep me out

Those are planaria and yes the dog dewormer should work. Here is a link from planetinverts.com about how to use the dewormer....

Try to make sure the powder is finely crushed for better distribution. It doesn't dissolve very well in water.
