Here is the other slug I mentioned in my other message. In my aquarium it will eat Stolonifera
Is this interesting?

Yes this is interesting. It is Dermatobranchus albus, which is apparently not uncommon throughout the Indo-West Pacific. However we have no information on what it eats. Other species of Dermatobranchus are known to feed on soft corals and gorgonians, so your report of it feeding on the related stoloniferans is not unusual. Can you give us any idea on the identity of the stoloniferan, or have you a photo perhaps?
