I found one of these today.

He is currently in a cup and his fate will be decided today. :D

other members of the Pseudoceros family are known to feast only colonial tunicates/sea squirts. it might die without tunicates for it to eat. But idk, i dont really hear much about people keeping decorative nudibranchs in aquariums very long

I would say reef safe. Like hydrophylic said they eat something specific and will starve off eventually unless you can find out what it eats and supply it. Some will only eat a specific type of sponge and it will be impossible to keep it alive.

+1 to crooked reef
Saw something on nuidibranches for that show on national geographic's: Fish Tank Kings "most nudibranches will only eat sponges and that Wud be very expensive to grow, maintain and reproduce" like they said find info on them and see if u can get them their food.

I'd personally enjoy one myself I just feel it might be hard to find the right food... easily.
