I caught this guy eating polyps on a softy, Ive also had some dissappearing zoas, does anyone know about this guy? First nudi, Ive ever seen in the tank, dont know much about them. White in color, about a 1/4" long, I know the pics are lame, but see what you think.

yeah, they can demolish tanks like you wouldn't believe if their eggs hatch. It very difficult to spot them if they are laid. So far, the ones I have caught have just been irratating the polyps. I notice the polyps closed, and then when I inspect, I see either 1 or 2 small little nudis about the size of a pinhead. No polyps missing....yet.

Pinhead, dang that is small. See this type of predator could really screw me up, being Im only a 3gal reef, only plus is "not much room to hide"

At the same time, I had another variation of nudibranch, which was orange. They were about the size of a rice grain.
