Chromodoris spp. Nudibranchs are nearly impossible to keep alive in aquaria because their diet consists of specific, unknown species of sponge. They also tend to have very short lifespans. It’s not recommended to purchase these nudibranchs, but if you find one as a hitchhiker, its best chance of success is if you donate it to someone who has a very large aquarium with many species of sponges.
