Wanted: Flatworms!  - 03/11/2006 Hello,                        I am an senior undergraduate at University of California Berkeley and I am looking to obtain tropical Platyhelminthes species to track the regenerative potential in relation to their phylogeny. I see that you reference a lot of different species on your "flatworms, "Planaria, and marine aquariums" and I wanted to know how I would go about obtaining some. It seems like these are pests to many people with tropical fish tanks and that they are simply throwing them away.                                                      Thanks, Jen <Mmm, send along contact info. you want posted and we'll see if folks will send them your way. Bob Fenner> Re: Looking for Flatworms!  - 03/11/2006 Hello,                         Below is a little description along with my contact info.                                               Thank You, Jen Hello,                     I am an senior undergraduate at University of California Berkeley and I am looking to obtain tropical Platyhelminthes species to track the regenerative potential in relation to their phylogeny. If anyone has any of these in their tanks and want to get rid of them, I would be more then happy to pay for shipping and compensation. Please contact me at jlei@regensci.org                                                     Thank You, Jen <Will post. Good luck, life with your studies. Bob Fenner> A Gathering of Platyhelminths Hey there crew- I was just wandering your website because my wife and I would like to get a salt water tank.  I'm a big fan of invert life especially the marine flatworms/Polyclads so much color and variety.  In my wanderings of your pages I've found ways to get rid of certain nuisance flatworms but my question is just the opposite.  Do you have any advice on how I should go about obtaining the larger, more exotic delicate beings? Or is it a crap-shoot of getting them from live rocks and coral type things? Thanx- Jackson <Mmm, much more of the latter. Flatworms are anomalies in a few ways... one is that they're hard as all get out to get rid of... and yet they don't ship worth a darn... often "just dissolving" enroute. I suggest hanging around specialized (reef) fish stores, joining a local marine club, staying in contact with marine wholesalers, etailers for their occasional "recruits"... that just "show up" on/with other organisms. Good luck. Bob Fenner>
