Concerning message #345:
Hi I found this in my home aquarium could you please tell me is it a Hypselodoris infucata. I live in the UK so it must have come with some live rock. I have`nt bought anything new that i could have hitchiked with for a long time probably 6 months. I have noticed i had lots of sponges down the back of my tank which have now gone so I'm assuming this would most likely be the culprit.

Your animal has similarities to H. infucata but I am pretty sure it is the Japanese species Hypselodoris sagamiensis. I won't even try and explain how it ended up in a UK aquarium, but allowing for a bit of overexposure in your photo I am pretty sure this is what it is.
