    To me it looks like a black, blurry dot :whistling:

    Could be a nudi or even a flat worm. In Reef invertabrates they have pics of flat worms, and some of them look just like nudi's.

    well, the pic was due to dead camera, but even with the camera i dont think i would have got the pic. its pitch black, the only reason i could see any features of it was because they were against a white backround. this oak is a nudi. not sure what to do with it now because i dont want it in my pump like the last one

    I also had a black one some time ago. Usually the hitch hiker nudi's are fairly hardy, but I'm always scared it might die for some reason and release some toxins and stuff.

    That nudi was not in Vipers old tank :whistling:, it was in my fuge - but you new that didn't you?
    Because mine was in the fuge I let him be as there was no danger of pumps etc. He might just start chowing away at your corals later on, so I would say catch him and... well, I'm not cruel so you decide what to do with him :p

    I'm joking about Viper's tank - didn't you ever see his old setup that was so full of hair algae? He grew the stuff :whistling:
