    guys - are all nudies bad? i have see some been sold at an LFS in centurion as nudies and they looked cool - they were kept in a coral tank with sps (plating montis) and everything was happy.

    Hi Shan - you get flat worms, and you get some "reef-same" (as they advertise them as) nudibranches that either have a functional purpose in one's tank, or is sold just for their looks.

    True nudibraches are never guaranteed to be reef-safe. Even though some nudi's specialise in eating only certain coral polyps......
    Other nudi's live on aptaisia - others again live off nuisance algae...
