Black sea slug is shrinking... Whats up with that??

I have had a black sea slug for at least 1 year now and he seems to be slowly shrinking?? He is skinny. My reef is 2 years old and my water perams are in check. I know that high nitrates are an issue for them but mine are in check??? Is he anorexic or am I accidentally starving him to death?? Help

I would imagine if hje has eaten all the algae in the tank he might be hungry? I know from that I have seen they eat a LOT of algae, so if your tank doesn't have much then maybe he is slowly starving????

I know they make algae pellets that my emerald crabs eat. Not sure about sea slugs though?
