Alien creature from hell?

Spotted this 2 days ago. I have no idea what it is. It moves around like a slug so I suspect it's something in that family.

Yehp, nudibranch! Do you have anything with similar colors in your tank? They seem to take on the color of their food, so that might be a hint towards what it's eating in your tank.

I had a nudibranch bag in my tank for a bit. Found the little guy on some reverse gorilla nipple zoanthids and pulled a couple polyps for him to munch on.

I had a beautiful blue nudibranch that I found on my blue sympodium. I put it in my pest tank and it slowly starved to death.......They usually only eat one thing.

I'd inspect the GSP for eggs or other nudis, and watch it closely to see what it eats..

If it is just eating gsp you could let it ride and see how gsp deals with it?

Whatever it's eating, it won't eat the other - so if it's GSP, your zoas are safe. If it's the zoas, your GSP is safe. Gotta find out which one, though :P

Thought this was a thread about my exwife, it's just about a nudibranch.  I'll just see myself out.

If we could isolate a species that only feeds on GSP or Xenia that could be the next "big thing".

how long has it been in your tank? just wondering cause if it hasn't been a while it might eat something that you don't even have in your tank.

Do you think it's going to the refrigerator for snacks?

I was thinking more along the lines of an algae or coral the OP does not have in their tank, and the nudibranch could be slowly starving to death... and just hasn't kicked it yet.

Kill it now.  It eats corals and it will lay eggs.  Trust me.  This is one of those pests that can cause people to shut down their tank in frustration.
