Caught a nudibranch!

I came home today from work and saw this guy munching on some zoos on my frag rack. Sucked him up with a turkey baster, examined him for a minute or two, took a couple pics and flushed him down the toilet! Hopefully he didn't lay any eggs.

IME, if it is that big, eggs are already there. Is the frag a new addition? Take the rock out and when the zoos close, give them a good examination. The eggs will look like small white swirly strands. A FW dip w/ lugols solution might be in order as well.

*180 gal Display, 100 gal basement sump, 33 gal refugium, 3x250 MH, 2x160 VHO actinics, zoos, some softies, LPS & lots of acros and other SPS.
*100 gal prop tank plumbed into main system w/ 2x96 PC lights and 1x150 MH,

Being new to this, I have to ask. What is so bad about those things?

I believe they will mow through your zoas like a hot knife through butter. You can take a peak at some info on This Page .

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!
