Unwanted Hitchhiker

Unwanted Hitchhikers that I found in my 15 gal frag tank, they were taking a stroll on the glass. They look like Zoanthid eating nudibranches to me..




Nuked the corals in the frag tank with Flatworm Exit and a Lugols dip today... I did not find one dead ZEN
Did find dead pods, worms and 2 real nice brittle stars

This is a good learning experience to always treat ALL incoming corals or QT them before going into the main tank.
I do treat every thing going into the main tank but in the frag tank I got lazy and put in some corals without treating..

Yup, looks like a AEOLID NUDIBRANCH. They like to mow down zoanthids.

I "Nuked the corals in the frag tank with Flatworm Exit and a Lugols dip today"
I used a tupperware bowl filled with sw and added the FWE soaked for 15 min then in another bowl I had Lugols iodine and soaked for another 15 min. Checked them over and put back in the frag tank.
I do not see where they ate any zoas? So if they did eat some it was not many.
