ID and Help with Coral Eater.

Hi,

For a few days I noticed that my clove polyps have not been doing to good, with some fingers shorten or missing. This morning I noticed a white slug thing on the top of one. I tried to pull it off but was latched pretty tightly. I couldn't.

I took some photos and uploaded them into my computer when I got back the white slug had gone. Is this some sort of flat worm, it has two small antennas. Anyone know of these things, and what is the best way to get rid of them.

Not sure, maybe a nudibranch. Some are known to eat corals.
Try looking with a flashlight a couple hours after dark, maybe you can catch him out in the open and then get him.

Yeah, after researching further I think it is a nudibranch.
