After scouring the internet for a couple days, I finally found a pair of velvet nudibranchs available. Tankstop.com came through for me.
These guys started eating right away! Thanks again @Eric Cohen

I can see how the two would get mixed up. I would’ve thought any halichoeres would possibly eat them, but I’m about as far from a wrasse expert as there is.

Velvet nudibranchs are excellent with all flatworms

I looked these up way back like 10+ yrs ago for my red flatworm planaria outbreak I had. No one unfortunately at the time sold them. Exciting to see the animal available and in a hobbyists tank right on. Kudos.

How are your Nudis doing?
They did not like the flow in my tank, I would turn the pumps off and they would crawl around but as soon as my pumps came on they would puff up, and get pushed around. Towards the end of the night I saw my nassaurius snails going to town on the nudibranchs. I’m going to check the tank now but I’m pretty sure they were eaten by snails hah. Oh well… swing and a miss

Is that a thing?

I've never seen nass snails as predatory.

They can smell food through the sand and from far away, I think the nudis started to fade and release slime, that slime probably triggered the nass because they pounced on them as soon as the lights went out.

Oh man I’m not happy to read this! I appreciate the mention though and hope we can figure it out. Keep me posted. Btw how did my box get all sideways? Looks like the box is on its side but tape is not where it’s supposed to be. So weird like an illusion!

Did you even get the joy of seeing the niudis devour any of your flatworms alive before they were lost?!?!?!
You know it strange the reaction they had on the flatworm colony. At first I did see them taking big bites off the rock, right where they landed. But then the flatworms started to crawl on the backs of the nudibranchs, like they were getting caught in a slime coat. It was wry interesting to watch. Ended too soon I’ll always wonder what happened, what could have happened.
