Elysia crispata (the lettuce sea slug) Another pseudo-impulse purchase in which again I asked "What does he eat, algae?" which the answer was "yes"; I even mentioned our bad luck with the Blue Dorid Nudibranch which we had to return, and I was told they don't carry animals that could possibly take down a tank. Yes he eats algae, but if you read the fine print, he only eats a particular type of algae, and wouldn't you know, it's not the type growing in our tank at the moment, so now we're on an algae hunt. On a positive note, he has a cute factor though, so we'll keep our fingers crossed and hope he doesn't foul the tank if he goes south. Also the only other tank mate is a feather duster, so the loss won't be as big as it would be if he were in the Aquapod.
