This Nudibranch (Pteraeolidia ianthina) was found on moving across a coral reef in the Coral Sea off the coast of Townsville in Queensland, Australia.

It is thought that this species once it develops its farm of zooxanthellae it no longer needs to search for food - it only needs to ensure the farm continues to survive by providing sufficient sunlight.
