A massive thing appeared in my tank. It is huge. Size of a half dollar, black. I thought it was a mushroom until it used tentacle feet to move away. By the time I snapped a picture it was gone. Who knows which of my precious corals its munching on! There's a pic of it in the I'd section. Never seen anything like it.

It depends what kind. Some are some aren't. Most common ones found as hitchhikers seem to be zoa eating nudis though.

Was unable to get the thing out of my tank last night. Took a toothbrush to its back and my blood shrimp went nuts consuming the bits...hopefully it does not survive.

Did a water change and dosed Purple Up as I'm out of stuff to increase my alk until more arrives in the mail. Adjusted the intensity of the Radions. Now at 58% power with a short peak at 64%. Things are going well, just concerned at how my plate coral pulls back into the skeleton at peak power. It is coloring up, just a concern.

Added the cuc, pods, and nudibranches. They are pretty cool. Much larger than I thought they would be. They'll be happy in the system and its algae that builds up. They started to go to town upon being put in after short acclimation.

What type of nudis are they? I'm trying to find something to kill the bryopsis.. Nothing works.

They are lettuce nudi's. I have read that sometimes they will chew on byropsis, but that seemed like a few and far between statement. I did discover where my byropsis was hiding. It took root against the back wall between the wall and a powerhead. Cleaned that up. I'm sure it is still around, but it is in check. If I end up seeing one chew on some byropsis I'll let you know. Is your outbreak bad or are you just paranoid about it?

Also, I caught the rogue nudibranch last night. I relocated him in the 36 FOWLR tank with the eel and flame angel. It has adjusted and doing its thing and I will continue to watch it. I've never seen a nudi like it. Rather than it having the riffled ridges along its back...it is more like a skirt the whole way around it. Pretty cool. Reminds me of an egg after you crack it...just with a black skirt and white center. I'm debating what it was eating...it can't be new to my tank as nothing new has been added that could have carried something that large in quite some time. I'm thinking it was in one of the mud spots in some of the LR that I couldn't get cleaned out.

OH I FORGOT! While hunting for the nudi, I happened to look at my blue bottle brush. It has it's color back! It isn't fully back, but that's progress.

My zoas are also multiplying quickly. I have a couple plugs in my 36 that I'm thinking about clearing off and putting them on. Maybe a donation to a pal who might be following this thread who is thinking about opening a shop or maybe a nice trade for someone someday. Hell, even my birdsnest frags are doing great! Need to get them out to make room for more. My birdsnest is massive and needs trimmed.
