    from what I can tell, it looks like a dorid - they are specialised feeders - where did you get it?

    Would you have enough algea to keep him happy? If not why not help out other reefers with algea problems and in turn you keep him happy as well

    Good for algae. I have heard that they can squirt a toxin into the tank which may kill fish if it is startled / attacked

    Its toxins can wipe out an entire tank but excellent grazers .... Watch out for them getting stuck in pumps ... Any stress they feel can release these toxins ...
