HusbandryCrimora coneja Er. Marcus, 1961
Crimora coneja, commonly known as Rabbit Doris, is a rarely seen dorid nudibranch.Rhinophores are orange in colour, white gills and orange and brown tipped dorsal papillae. Some of dorsal papillae have forked tips.
This species feeds exclusively on the encrusting bryozoan Hincksina minuscula. This bryozoan can be found usually in cryptic habitats, on the undersides of loose rocks,in small holes and crevices.
The egg mass is a thin white ribbon laid flat.Planktotrophic veliger larvae hatch from these egg masses after 10 to 17 days.
Similar is Triopha catalinae and Laila cockerelli.
