Nudibranch

Just realized the small, pretty Nudibranch that appeared the same time I purchased my Blue Sponge, now appears to b eating it. Should have put 2+2 together sooner. Nudibranchs can b beautiful but I like my sponge better. I've got a sponge that came with my Zoa's. He could eat that. But nooo he has to eat the Blue one

Nudibranch's have specific diets. Mine happens to b sponges. He would starve in the sump. No, he will meet a quick demise

Had a similar situation. One ate my blue sponge fairly quickly as well. The blue was tastier than the white it seemed. Off he went to the LFS for trade credit. Maybe you can do the same?

I suppose it's possible someone would want this sponge eater. I wont try to get credit. But I'll give my LFS a call. He might get lucky

Is your sponge ok? Did he eat all of it?
