I saw a few of these at Blue World on the week-end. They are really beautiful but I don't know a thing about their care so I had to pass. Nice photos, the color is pretty much bang on to what they look like in person.

I was contemplating them too when I saw them at blue world. Shanon told me there sponge eaters. I couldn't justify buying them since I bought all my sponge. I would have lost on both ends. Once they ate the sponge and again when they starved. 😞

Not really worthy of an actual entry since they are slightly out of focus but in my defence the current was strong that day and it was hard to keep still.:wink:
In this top picture this nudibranche is at least 4 inches long.

Not 100% but pretty sure its gas exchange, Predation defence (Bright colors= poisonous) and for attracting other lady boys for good times haha.

Hello,

Sorry have been super tied up and will be so for the rest of the week, thus the delay in posting this up in as a poll thread.

Loads of awesome images so far. Will try to get the images all sorted out over weekend.
Meanwhile, keep submitting if you haven't done so already.

Titus
