    Been toying with this idea, has anyone kept a nudi only tank. I am thinking Gymnodoris sp. as it is predatory by nature as far as I know

    Yip..on a good day I have to decide between loving & hating this hobby :). Just thought as they ( Gymnodoris sp) are predatory feeding MIGHT be a bit easier

    Looks like a lot of work, but possible very rewarding! I think they are quite intersting little creature...

    thanks crispin..at this stage just one of my crazy ideas ;)...see what happens when the non reefer is in CPT & you in PTA . Even if I try this getting them would probably be an issue & still loads of research to do before even attempting, I believe in knowing your limits

    I love the idea of a nudibranch tank. :) But... depending on what you want to keep, it could get expensive (like, say, if they are obligate coralivores that only each Euphyllia). Might also note that many of these only live for a few years (in the wild and/or captivity).

    If you want to try your hand at nudi keeping/raising, I'd start with the Berghia verrucicornis (aiptasia eating nudibranch). Maybe they're not the prettiest nudibranchs in the world, but dude... they eat aiptasia! ...and we already know they can be kept/raised in captivity relatively easily.
