I am the proud owner of a 90 gallon reef tank. The other day I saw a sea slug for sale at a local marine store. I have been unable to find any information on it. I looked in your species list. But the closest I could find was the Hypselodoris flavomarginata. I must tell you mine is a bright pink in color with yellow "horns". Have any idea which sea slug I might own? Better yet what it might eat?
Any information would be very helpful. Thank you for your time.

It sounds a bit like one of the 'species' or 'colour forms' I am calling Hypselodoris bullocki. Have a look at the photos I have of that species and let me know if any of them look like your animal. If it is that then it has a pretty restricted diet, feeding only on a few species of sponge. One of the photos has it on an unidentified species of Dysidea but I doubt if aquarium shops can supply identified sponges on order.
