Spot eye on the nudibranch is not always in the head of the nudibranch, some nudibranchs have it in the back. Flash to the eye spot will make the nudibranch turn away from the camera, so wait for the right moments before taking the photo
  3. The nudibranch protects itself from its predators by collecting the toxins from coral they eat on his body. The colour on his body is used as a reminder to predators that his body contains toxins. But there are also nudibranches use their body colour just to pretend toxic to scare the predator. A low light flash can help to restore color to the nudibranch without making the colour of the surrounding area too conspicuous
  4. Nudibranchs are hermaphrodite animals which means they carry their own male and female organs. they can produce eggs in a single fertilisation of over 1 million eggs. Eggs are arranged in a ribbon-shaped container that tends to be light-colored. Nudibranch is often found near the egg, when finding a nudibranch egg, try to look around
  5. Nudibranches spend more time on algae, hydroids or corals that they eat. Different types of agae, hydroids or corals are eaten by different types of nudibranchs. This can be used as reference to find various types of nudibranchs.
