I have no idea, I know they havn't been discussed much on this board before. Have you found any good slug links in your search for info on them?

i haven't had a lot of time to search for it, i just found it this afternoon, and i work like 60+ a week and go to school full time. I've looked in the annual 2003 marine fish and reef magazine, they had an article about sea slugs. And i also looked at the FAQ article posted in the identification forum, but all of the sea slug descriptions said it would have many little tenticles off its back. Whatever is in my tank doesn't. It's pretty smooth bodied, it actually looks like a snail without a shell, except that the bottom of the creature doesn't flare out like a snail

It's really hard to provide any good info. without a positive ID - which is next to impossible without a picture. Some are reef safe, some aren't. Some are toxic, some aren't.

Here are a couple good places to start:

>>ReefImages<<

>>The Slug Site<<

>>SeaSlugForum<<

HTH!
