Alternative names[edit]

Minor Notodoris


They are found on reefs across the Indo-Pacific, from China to Queensland.


Nudibranchs are hermaphroditic, however they do not fertilise themselves when breeding and will pair up, with both individuals then laying eggs.

Tank compatibility[edit]

Not recommended for keeping in captivity due to their sensitivity.


Extremely fussy eaters, the Notodoris Minor exclusively feeds on calcareous sponges belonging to the Leucettidae family.

Environment Specifics[edit]

Very delicate to changes in their environment. Requires an SG of 1.023-1.025.


Constantly on the prowl for food, they are a form of sea slug therefore move quite slowly and can be a target for boisterous fish.


This nudibranch is a member of the Doridoidea family, it has a broad flat foot with it's gills midway along it's body hiding under 3 lobes. It's coloured a very bright vivid yellow, including the rhinophores, and this is criss-crossed with thin black lines, as if it's been splashed by black paint.
