sea slug

  1. Pests, Hitchhikers, and Diseases
    Strange black sea slug or nudibranch? Can't tell if this is a good hitchhiker or a bad one. Hanging out on the hammer this evening. It must have come in on a small torch coral, but survived a dip. Any ideas? Keep or jettison?

    It hitchhiked in on my green polyp coral and I am not sure if I should remove it or if it is a good thing. Let me know if you can.

    Hey guys. Ive always been intrigued by nudibranchs and i would really love to keep one in my tank. People keep saying everywhere that they are "impossible to keep" but i beg to differ. I think keeping one in a aquarium is possible. I've been researching ones for sale and different species and im...

    Hey Im new to the forum, just recently started keeping a salt water aquarium. I got some soft coral today and i found this slug on it, thought it was just part of the coral when I put it in my tank but it started moving and looking more like a slug. My question is can anyone help identify it and...

    I really like the looks of these but cannot find much on them. Are they reef safe? I think I have enough algae to last a little while, but could I just use algae sheets once I run out? How big do they get.:confused:

    I have a 12 gallon nano cube and I have so much hair algae growing in my tank. I do weekly 2 gallon water changes, so all my parameters are good. Nitrates and nitrites are normal, pH is normal, temperature is about 75 degrees. I leave my light on for four hours a day. In my tank right now...

    I plan to grow up some algae and aptasia, and then introduce some sea slugs for a small inert-fun tank. Does this sound doable? Thanks, --Avery

    Hey everybody, woke up this mornign to find this crawling on the front of my tank. It's small (1-2 mm), white, and looks kinda like a 3-legged sea star. It's very slow. Anybody know what it is?
  13. Pests, Hitchhikers, and Diseases
    I just found this little guy cruising around inside my tank. He's only like an inch or two long. It looks like a baby sea hare? He moves like a sea hare, and has little ears like a sea hare. If it is, what do I feed him?

    Hey all. Just thinking about picking up a lettuce sea slug for some quick hair algae/bryopsis help. The bryopsis I can deal with, pretty easy to pull out. But the hair algae is killing me. Especially on the hard to reach LR. Never had a problem till a recent coral brought some into the tank and...

    I asked you guys to try to help my identify this "coral" which definetely is not a coral, but a sea slug. Everyone had great input, thanks guys! Sorry I could not get a good pic. It was hanging on a live rock all day yesterday, and last night it moved back to pipe organ which I originally saw...

    I need help identifying this slug I just noticed in my tank. I went to adjust my power head and there was a bright red/orange blob on it. Thought maybe it was a wierd egg sac. Then after a couple minutes its eyes came out and it started moving. Like I said it is bright orange/red it has snai...

    I got two of these sea slugs in my 75g reef and I dont know how they got there other thru some LR I put in. Anyway, after a WC they both perch up on the ledge of a rock and began SQUIRTING stuff into the water, which I assume is TOXEN.... this stuff is now floating near the top of the water...

    I decided to put a glass w/ a silverside in it to try and catch a crab in my tank..as I was worried the loose crab in there might be why I've had several fish deaths... when I went to check it w/ a flashlight.. I saw a weird looking slug in the glass... almost resembling a Stomatella w/out the...
