Something peculiar on my Zoa

Can anyone advise what these
white looking things on my Zoas are? They are present only on the ones on the photo (at the moment).

I believe they are flatworms.

Iíve tried Flatworm RX but not sure whether itís working. One moment,nothing then a few hours later there they are. Current thinking is a sixline but in COVID not sure if I could find one.

Tried using my underwater video camera but cannot the the close up focus. The best was to describe them is like a plate but split down the middle. Going to my LFS to see if thereís a wrasse thatís can start to clean up. One recommended is a yellow wrasse?.

hard to see in your pics, but would appear to be infested with some type of flatworms.

Hello, I beat the flatworm with Hydrogen Peroxide 3%.
Add 200ml in 1 liter of water, immersion of 3min, then 15min in other container with aquarium water, another 3min immersion in Peroxide, 15 minutes in another container with aquarium water and enter it back to the display, you can perform the test with a frag, it is normal that Zoa remain closed for 1 day or 2, then they will open without problems, I recommend blowing with a turkey baster to separate the flatworm from zoas, plug or rock, good luck!
