    Yea thanks you had it right thanks for the heads up. I started looking for sea slugs that were purple couldn't find anything till I read that nudibranchs will sometimes look like the coral they are eating so I put in gsp eating nudibranch and there it was. Thanks again !!!

    That's a pretty nice find. Too bad it turned out to be a troublemaker. :P
