peppermints....they are completly reef safe and when death does occur they will not release toxins in the water that some nudibranchs do...also most nudibranchs have specialized feeding habits wether it be a sea apple that filter feeds or the chromodoris that require sponges in there diet....if you do go with one of these make sure you can provide its dieat like a sea hare....they are herbivors....algaes and caleurpa....peppermints will eat all fares....
the drip method is the safest but the most tedious....use an apropriate lengthed piece of air line tubing and tie a loose knot in it. put the bag that contains the animal in another container to prop the bag up and to catch overflow if nescisary....start a siphon into the bag inthe container that is lower than your aquarium...tighten the knot in the tubeing until it just drips...and wait until the bag fills accordingly then release...an easier method that is not as safe but is a half way is to just float the bag for about 10-15 minutes then put in a cup of your water prop or float the bag for another 15-20 minutes then repeat....until the bag is almost full then release...many animals will be fine with a simple float but if you want to minimize stress this is the way to do it.....and peppermints dont like sudden water changes....hope this helps....
Thank you that helps alot :) My colt coral (tree) has attatched itself in 2 places...one to a very very small rock and then the second is to a deadstone coral, but not on the original side that it was attatched b4. Does that make sense lol Will it reproduce on it's own or do you frag it?
