    Hi All

    Im looking for an id on this slug I saw in my tank last night the pic is not very good but it was all I could get before it burrowed into the sand again. It is definately a hitch hiker, Im not too sure how long it has been in the tank. Its about 5 or 6cm long and on top is very dull almost looks like a piece of live rock.
    So far Im thinking sea hare.
