I just got some new zoa frags and shook them out before dipping them. This little nudibranch came out. He’s definitely not a zoa eating nudi or a Monti eating nudi.
Any thoughts?
He doesn’t have all the little “appendages” that the two nudis I mentioned have. He’s got more of the flat “wings” like a lettuce nudibranch?

Closest thing I could find is maybe a Phyllaplysia taylori in possibly a juvenile stage? Photos are pretty blurry but that's the closest thing I could find with similar characteristics. How small is it? Also, if it is...it would not be a nudibranch, but a sea slug:

Possibly orange ghost nudibranch. Several members have had these popping up lately. Lecithophorus sp. As far as I know they don't hurt anything directly but you don't want them multiplying in the tank.
 

What is the best "cleaning product" or home recipe for cleaning reef tank equipment?
