Dear Richard,
Since you put Hypselodoris bullocki in the title can I assume that is what you have? Have a look at the photos on the Hypselodoris bullocki Pages to make sure.

If you do have H. bullocki, have a look at the two messages from Laura Romin [message 1, message 2] where we discuss its food and she suggests an artificial substitute. I haven't heard back from her to see if it was a success but it's worth a try or perhaps you could email her.

Have a look at the page and messages about Keeping slugs in captivity.

Best wishes,
Bill Rudman.
