Tiger Tail Sea Cucumber

Tiger Tail Sea Cucumber

This sea cucumber is a filter feeder that requires live rock and sand in its tank. It also needs plenty of caves to hide in and use as shelter. As with many other invertebrates, this species is extremely sensitive to changes in water quality. A refugium can help this species with its food supply. This species will not tolerate copper, nor will it survive in conditions with high nitrate levels. Drip acclimation is highly recommended when introducing this species to its new home.

These sea cucumbers should not be handled unless absolutely necessary, and have been known to expel their internal organs as a form of defense. They should also not be removed from water as they have been known to "melt" when taken out of any body of water.

Does best with only community fish.
