    that I am not sure. We had the one in our big tank for about 1 month and had no noticiable bryopsis. As soon as we get this outbreak under control we will be rehoming many of them

    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    They sure are cool looking. It would be great if they took to a different type of algae. Maybe some algae waffers?

    They would likely survive until Bryopsis comes back or if you have Halimeda.They are not nudibranch. They are a sacoglossan that is photosynthetic.
