I've managed to remove the larger nudi's from my tank, but while trying to get rid of the egg sacks (layed on my orange Zoo) one broke and released a few into the tank, what are the chances of survival of these lose eggs (about ten) i.e will the coral/feathers eat them?

That would be hard to answer as it would depend upon how short the larval stage(s) are of that species as well as if the larvae have plankton stage(s) or not. and if they by chance get lucky and avoid all predators and filters. I would bet against them not surviving, specialy if they are not near their coral food source now.

Here's what zoa-eating nudibranch eggs look like.

The lettuce leaf nudibranch that is sold to eat algae is not actually a nudibranch....it's a sea slug. Many people think that sea hares are nudibranch's too but they are really shell-less mollusks.
