    There were billions of these today where the south east Queensland aquarium society trip was held.
    They are the best at Aiptasia removal, but unlike only one other aeolid, I have never tried this one with other inverts like corals and tubeworms in the very distant past.
    Some came home and it should be interesting as to what happens.

    They are a nice looking nudibranch and common as mud here.
    They change colour when up close and personal with another and they are photosynthetic through their flesh, that's what gives them varying colours.
    The one on my glove I had to separate it from an intimate activity, lol, nearly all of them were doing this!
