    wierd thing crawled out of live rock!

    Something crawled out of a new piece of live rock. It looks like a thin striped nudibranch, but it is black with a single stripe that goes down the body from the head to the bottom. It hides during most of the day and swims like a sting ray.

    Help! I have no idea what is wrong!

    if the crabs have "shell envy" like mine did, then they will kill to get the shell on them. Mine used the shell for a day then tossed it. (crazy because i have a lot of turbo shells...) it could also be because you did not acclimate the snails enough, they need a extra long time.
