    I found this nudibranch in my coral tank. I tried to look up information about what kind it is and I can't find anything about this guy. I found two of them. What kind is it and what does it eat??

    I had one of those in my tank about a year ago, caught him snacking on my clove polyps. Haven't seen another since. 438ea81b ce8c 80ee - unknown Nudibranch
