Red lined Flabellina_Goa_2023
The best place to find nudis is in current, as pinnacles or wrecks..or diving with expert n.hunters! For these two I have to thank the friend Aaron of West Coast who, despite the bad vis, made this shot possible_Goa_2023
Deep red color for this Flabellina walking on the algae of the Goa wreck, the only existing wreck here but full of life, especially nudibranchs! Goa _2023
Many nudibranchs display the bright colours to suggest to predators that they are toxic. This is a technique used also by the Flabellinidae family.In this photo we see two of them found on a wreck a few meters deep_2023

Photograph nudis in these parts of Arabic Sea is a bit more challenging than elsewhere given the poor visibility.
