I am trying to identify the attached that I saw only a few times in my reef tank. I need to know if it is harmful or if it is just part of the Eco system of my tank. Any help that you can offer I would appreciate it.

Thank you Andrew

Google nudibranches. Have you added any corals recently as nudis have very specific diets normally

Definitely a nudi. How big is it? Do you have any zoanthids or montipora?

How big is the nudi? It's on the glass not the zoas so that is a good sign. Have the zoas been closed lately?

It's about three eights of an inch and some zoas are closed but they alternate opening.
