I to am interested in keeping Haminoea cymbalum in a reef set up. It contains many algae species and a thriving community of sacoglossans. I live in Brisbane and would like to find out if they can be collected somewhere locally as far as a day trip. Any information would be greatfully received.

I'm afraid I have no local knowledge on where you would find H. cymbalum around Brisbane. Species of Haminoea are often found on sheltered sand or sandy-mud shores but they are also found on rocky reefs, or coral reef flats. In fact the few times I have found H. cymbalum around Sydney it has been on intertidal rock platforms.
I'm sorry to say that sea slugs as a group are not the easiest animals to collect on demand. Even the most common species will disappear just when you need a few, and will not appear again for months.
I am interested in your mention of keeping sacoglossans alive in your aquarium. Do you know what species you have?
