Bahamas slugs

Hi Bill,
Here are two photos from the Turks and Caicos Islands, near the Bahamas, where it is next to impossible to find nudibranchs! I found only three different ones over 24 dives this summer. One is Tritoniopsis frydis. The photo also shows a very strange green shrimp. I have no idea what it could be, and the other is an undescribed Facelina sp. Both were found in shallow water( 30 feet) at night.
