Black/gold Nudibranch

Ok, no picture since he decided to hide by the time I fished out the camera.

About 3/4" long, black with gold stripes, with a white rim around him. One protrusion near the back. Couldn't find any IDs. DIdn't buy him, so he either came on the LR and I just noticed him, or somehow was attached to the new anemone (Sebae, false percs. took right to it ).

Any ideas?

55g reef, 2x250W 10k MH + 2x96W PC actninc, 10g sump, AquaC Urchin skimmer, 65lbs LR

xenia, mushrooms, wels. open brain, fungia radiata (orange), green eyed zoos

flame angel, mated pair of false perc, 6-line, firefish

20gH electric yellow cichlid

There are many nudibranchs that fit very close to that description. Many are varied in their color patterns as well. Get a photo when you can. For the most part, nudibranchs are notorious coral eaters, so watch it and watch any coral you have. Granted there are many nudibranchs that don't eat coral and just eat algae. However, the majority of them seem to be not reef tank friendly. Beautiful yeah, but can degrade coral livestock.
We, as a people, know so much more about outer space than we do about our own oceans. This lack of knowledge can very well spell the dangers that lay in wait for us.

The oceans surely would swallow us before a rock comes down to smite the planet of it's life.
