    Hello fellow Reefers

    I have recently found four of these little pink furry monsters in my tank.
    They are small in size, about 20mm long and 8mm wide, and seem to travel all around the reef.

    Being new to this environment, I have been unable to identify them through any other means, and would therefore appreciate it if someone could tell me what they are.

    Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

    Warmest regards

    Not sure, could be some kind of nudibranch.

    Agreed, and by the looks of it, a nasty nudi by that - the kind that eats coral, so I would suggest removing it asap.
