Removing a nudibranch from bubble trap box

I've got a hitchhiker nudibranch (about 2" long) living in the bubble trap box for my CSS 125 skimmer.

I really need to clean the bubble box.

Is it safe to move him? Should I keep him out, in a QT tank once I remove him (since so many people have noted they can be toxic to fish)...

I've not been able to get a positive ID on him, because he's always hiding in that box...

Any chance you can convince him to move out and into a tupperware container for a while, long enough for a picture? That way maybe he can be ID'ed. I always thought most nudibranchs were safe in a tank, but I could be wrong.

If he's in the bubble box tomorrow, I'll try to "slide" him into a dish or bowl...

I believe it depends on what the nudi eats. If they eat stuff the puts out toxins, then when it dies or stresses, it could possibly do some damage. Please feel free to correct me, if I am wrong....
