Found in my Sump

I was checking on my chaeto I bought a few weeks back from the algae barn and found these. They look like nudibranchs. Never had them in my reef until I bought this chaeto. Any idea what these things are and what they eat. There are quite a few in my five now.

Look like nudibranch to me. Do you have any zoas that look like them?


I had them, and they were eating my zoas(they literally looked just like the zoa polyp so it was super hard to see them). I must have gotten them early or I was lucky. Spent a few days picking off every one I could see. Never had a problem with them since.

I would just pick them off and keep an eye for them in my DT. Maybe some others with a little more experience with them will chime in.

Likely a type of aeolid nudibranch and should usually just be removed to be on the safe side

If you're lucky they could be Berghia. Hard to tell from the photo.

OK, I was hoping they were just showing up dark in the photo.
