    It might also be a type of Sea Hare. Does it feel slimy or rough on his back? Sea Hares have tough, leathery skin on their back. Most Nudi's don't really last too long in aquariums, have any of your corals been eaten? If not, I would not worry about it, having eaten enough to increase ten fold and also not damaging your corals, he can only eat something good I suppose...:)

    Just to add, Sea Hares are good, they are algae eaters, and have been known to eat hair algae...

    Please do me a favour. If you caught the guy locally,put him back into our waters. The last thing you want is having it stuck in one of your pumps.....It will make the water toxic.Been there done that.
