Hitchiker slug

Does anyone no if a Hitchiker slug will last he's a dot but I no they eat a lot of algae and most of them don't last, I no starving is probably the last thing that will kill him if he makes it by the things that see him as lunch ? But if he does will he get big like the ones in the shop?

Are you sure it's a slug and not a Stomatella snail. I only say this because it is so small.
Stomatella's have no shell and look very similar to a slug.

Does it show white on its back in the middle, occasionally? If so it is called a Scutus. I had one for years, but after my upgrade 16 months ago, I haven't seen it. :-(

Sorry last post was directed to Hardridge.

As far as the green slug, I rarely ever see slugs or nudibranchs at any of my LFS. I would really like one of the wild colored nudis, but they are hard to keep for long. From what I gather they are very selective feeders and most of the time we don't even know what they eat.
