    Found it

    Hi PPL i found it



    February 18, 2008
    From: Hugues Flodrops


    [​IMG] Dear Bill,
    On the same night [see message #21233], about three meters away, I found a second Philinopsis which looked like P. cyanea. The classical yellow lines on the head are modified.
    Locality: Etang-Salé, 1 metre, Reunion Island, Indian Ocean, 27 November 2007, Night. Length: 60 mm. Photographer: Hugues Flodrops.
    I hope that you can explain these variations.
    Bests regards.

    Flodrops,H., 2008 (Feb 18) Philinopsis cyanea from Reunion Island. [Message in] Sea Slug Forum. Australian Museum, Sydney. Available from The Sea Slug Forum - Philinopsis cyanea


    Now i just need to know what they eat

    Philinopsis are very predatory. They eat mostly nudibranchs and snails.

    So what about my fish?
    Will it go for my fish?
    Do they need a deep sandbed?

    If you have any more info on them?

    Thanx

    Should be fine with fish, but you're gonna need a supply of sea hares or something to keep it fed...

    Most if not all nudibranches are specialised feeders, highly unlikely it will eat hake.

    Wild prey is nudibranchs and other bubble shells. Nobody knows that much about keeping them in tanks, but I doubt they'd deviate much from their natural diet.
