    My dad picked up a hitchhiker on one of the corals he bought, well quiet a few actually....

    but this one we are not sure about,
    It is a nudibranch we dont know if it is tank safe, so the question is do we keep it in the tank ot take it out...

    and then the second is a yellow crab with black pinchers...

    Lol Sorry Hi GUYS NOT HI GUESS

    Nudibranches are generally specialist feeders, eating only one type of food only. My first response would be to put it back where you found it as chances are you wont be able to keep it alive and it will slowly starve to death. The other side of the coin is they could turn on you and start eating your corals if they are that way inclined

    I can't remember where it is, but @viper357 posted a link to a sea slug info site, maybe he can do it again :whistling:
    On the crab, I had two crabs with same body shape and pinshers like that, one was white with brown spots and one was darker. They never caused any problems in my tank and I had LPS corals and coco worms, etc
    I even fed them a small piece of fish a week, took it from the hand :p
    It is assumed that "hairy" crabs are not reef friendly, but if you're unsure, sump him.

    I would personally get rid of the crab as well as they can be predatory
