    Hi everyone and Merry Christmas!

    I got back from a little over a week's holiday. My tank was fine, except for the glass being a bit covered in algae. I cleaned it today.

    I noticed my Cladiella missing. The person who looked after my tank said he noticed it missing yesterday morning. I thought nothing of it, maybe it just came loose or something. however, i couldn't find it anywhere in the tank.

    A few minutes ago I found two Nudi's (I managed to ID them as Tritoniopsis elegans, thanks to the The Sea Slug Forum - Tritoniopsis elegans ).

    From what I've been able to Google, practically all advice it to remove it. I really don't want to kill things, but if it's going to be eating my softies, it should rather go. What would be the best way to get rid of it?

    I would remove it altogether

    Maybe to someone who has a tank where they want to remove softies and concentrate on hard corals.
    I wonder if they eat xenia as if they do I know of someone that may want them.
