    Hi people,

    got up early one morning to find a 2" long slug going up the front of the glass.

    its all white & has a load of white tree shaped things on its back.
    Anyway we were off to the airport & didn't have time to get it out so left it.
    Had a search online later & it seems to be some sort of softy eating nudibranch ???
    From the size of it it must have been eating something but none of my corals showed any damage apart from a torch that died off a week earlier.. Then when we got home a few days later we found a ring of what I assume are eggs, don't know if they are snails or nudis so we scraped em off & siphoned em out..

    Had look at my finger coral today & it does look like something has had a go at it.
    So does the nudi have to go ?
    If so I will have to plan a night time trip to see if he's up & about.

    cheers

    Tony

    hope the pics are attached :biggrin:

    Take a very close look at your corals. It is probably somewhere on them all the time.

    Except for the blue velvet nudi that eats flatworms, I never knew of a "good" nudi to have.
