I know. The thing is so cool. The last pic is the thing going across the top of the water upside down. No idea how it can do that.
I wish I Knew what it eats. It loved the mexicana.
PS time to set up a pest tank.

lettuce nudi

That's most definately a lettuce nudi. It is (or was?) a vegetarian. They eat hair algae. They never touch zoos or any corals. They are beneficial and stores generally sell them with their clean-up crews.

Man, I hope you didn't kill him! I'll take him off of your hands if you don't want him!

I have a photo of this organism in my Reef Invertebrates book... I pulled it off the mantle of a dying Squamosa clam (notice the similarity between the flatworms pattern and a Tridacna squamosa clam mantle... its not a coincidence :p)
