    Bad nudibranch?

    Well....as I was staring at my tank tonight I noticed a very small slug looking thing on one of my overflow wall. As I looked closer, I noticed that it was moving and it looked like a type of nudi, it was florescent green with the blues on. I thought that it was so cool and it was only about 1/4" long. So I decided to do some research to see if I could figure out what kind of nudi it was for sure and this is what I found...

    AEOLID NUDIBRANCHS
    There are lots of aeolids (including the aiptasia-eating berghia - a good guy to have!) but the most common one for us is this guy - a zoanthid predator! They are a pain to get rid of but will mow through your zos if you don't.

    I couldn't get a pic with my phone worth posting, but if you scroll down in this link.... http://www.xtalworld.com/Aquarium/hitchfaq.htm it's the little green guy. Hopefully I can find him again and get him out, but from what I have read, they multiply FAST.

    reefkoi chris has a ton of info on these guys. with how much he trades, buys, and sells I know that he has worked with them in the past. Without doing more research I seem to remember melanarous (sp????) wrasses controlling zoa nudis' and flat worms. good luck brother

    Cody, I am planning to stop by Ambers on Friday after I stop by Bush's house, maybe I could swing by and see your fuge setup? I am interested how you hooked all those tanks together to make one sump/fuge setup.
