Lettuce Nudibranch (Tridachia crispata) - Buy 1 Get 1 FREE!!
The Saltwater Lettuce Nudibranch is an excellent ELIMINATOR of Hair Algae- however since that is all it eats, it will die if there is not any hair algae for it to eat!
The side appendages called parapodia are highly folded giving the nudibranch a ruffled appearance. It is also known as the Lettuce Sea Slug.
When adding to your tank - Please remember - this guy is little and light as a feather - after following the acclimation instructions included with your shipment, please place the nudibranch into the area of hair algae. Do NOT simply think you can allow him to float and find his way to the trouble spot - he is way to small and will die of starvation before he makes it half way across your tank. He was conceived in hair algae, born in the hair algae and will die in the hair algae. Help the little guy out by placing him where he belongs - in the hair algae!!
