Gotta be a nudibranch.
Not sure of the genus tho, soooo many.

Protaeolidiella perhaps.

What kind of corals does your buddy have? With arms like that it may eat torch corals. Just a guess tho.

I think it's a nudibranch. I think I stumbled apron a pic of it when I was searching from a nudie I found in my tank. Not 100% sure though

Considering that the Walking Cactus is long extinct, my money is still on some form of Nudi

Yeah, I tried to google it as well. Came across a Nudi search page that had 21 pages of Genus' of Nudis. Some Genus had 9 sub-whatevers that all looked completely different. I gave up. I looked for corals that it looked like as they often look like what they eat (camo) and Gorgonians seemed the most likely. But that didn't help finding an exact match but Facelina annulicornis semed close in some photos (but not in others).
Has he had any corals mysteriously dying?
