Beautiful photos as always CRM :) Excuse my lack of sw experience but what in the world is that little brownish worm looking creature? Its kinda cute yet odd. :D

It's a type of nudibranch. With about 2,000 to choose from I just don't have the time yet to match it up. I have a book here with about 500 pages of photos and scientific descriptions to look through as I adore these creatures.

I must state that nudis are not for everyone. They are highly poisonous and without a good skimmer can wipe out a tank. They are also not very reef friendly.
That one is in a holding tank with softie frags to munch on.

If you like them check out, lettuce slugs or this other one.

These are also reef safe, well enough that is.
