lettuce nudi lasted one day. now mostly dead

I just got a nudi the other day, and he did a great job cleaning off one of my rocks. I had high hopes. Then today, he's 1/8th his original size. Basically just a head and part of the body. All the pretty fin parts are gone.

All I have in my tank is an O clown, a mithrax and some hermits.. could the clown have attacked him?

Sounds like he blew into a powerhead or something. Fish don't typically pick at nudis because of their slime coat. If a fish took a nip at it it probablly wouldn't go back for more. I have tried nudis two times myself and they all got a powerhead or an overflow box so I gave up on trying to keep them.

Here's to swimmin with bowlegged women.

Nudibrachs are hard to keep alive. In order to keep one, you have to have all your powerheads safe with a sponge wrapped around it in all areas that suck or blow.

It is possible (not likely) that other fish are nipping, but I am more inclined to agree with Brisc0 on this. It most likely got hit by a powerhead.

this is very true, I want to get one, just because they are very interesting and very beautiful creatures, but in captivity, they wont live very long
