    There are hundreds of different types of nudi's, some eat corals, some eat algae, you're going to have to be extremely specific with your description or provide a photo for us to try and help you. :)

    The closest I can find is these two:

    The Sea Slug Forum - Polycera capensis

    The Sea Slug Forum - Polycera tricolor

    If you google their scientific names you should be able to get some more info on them, but generally nudi's are not welcome inhabitants in our tanks as they are toxic and can poison and kill your entire tank if they stress or die or get sucked into a pump etc. A couple of members have suffered severe losses in their tanks from nudi's being killed by pumps.
