Dear William,
You want this information before Monday? You are very lucky that I am feeling kind! If you want to find information on the Forum click on anything underlined and use the navigation buttons at the top and bottom of every page.

There is a page on the Forum called 'Predation Records - Who eats Sea Slugs?'. If you go there you will find some examples of things that eat sea slugs. If you want more general information go to the General Topics List.

On your question about what they eat. Have a look at the top of this page for advice. Also have a look below your message for similar questions I have answered before.
Good Luck with your project - but next time don't leave it to the last minute
