    Hey guys, it's been quite some time since I've been on 3reef! I have a fusion 10 now and am hoping you can help me ID this critter. Honestly looks like a tiny green star polyp with two antennae and mobility... Thoughts? [​IMG][​IMG]

    The double image is its reflection in the glass. It's about ¼ inch long.


    While I'm at it,

    The Nudi has been disposed of!

    Thanks! My clown is a feisty little bugger and definitely runs the tank!

    Nudibranchs can pretty much disguise themselves to look similar to what there eating, even the color of said coral. Dipping future coral additions can help make sure they don't enter your DT but it's never a guarantee. Welcome back to 3reef. I'd check your zoas very carefully for more.

    Nice little tank.
    Hope you only had one nudibranch to get rid of.

    That's what I have heard. Found another one yesterday and got rid of him, and within a couple hours my zoas were looking better than they had in a couple weeks! I dip everything I put in my tank, so I'm at a loss for how these guys got in here, but I appreciate all the help folks!

    Dipping is never a guarantee but it's a good precaution. When dipping try adding current or blow the coral with a turkey baster.

    Thanks guys, the count is up to 2 Nudis found now. I've been trying to use Tapatalk, and haven't learned how to multiquote yet, so here is my thank you to all of you!

    I try to stir the water with a chopstick, but a turkey baster is a good idea! Thanks!
