    Recently purchased a piece of liverock and found a pink sea cucumber hiding inside! A nice little find. However, we found my arrow crab, Gibby, eating him. We separated the two, and placed the cucumber in a larger piece of live rock. It looks like the cucumber didnt take his hind end with him...

    Hi guys. Last night I purchased a red sand sifting cucumber on a whim. I've read about them and know about The risk of poisoning the tank if it dies and I don't want that!

    I just placed my first ever piece of live rock in the tank I'm cycling and couldn't believe how much more alive it is than I thought it would be. There are two different cucumber looking things in between the rocks that I'm not sure what they are and what to do with them. There are two...

    Honeslty can't find the right place to post this, so just going to post here... I bought a new used system off a friend, 330L tank with a sump. The sump is 2 tanks, equals 110L. One tank is a refugium and I put some live rock in there so I don't have it all in the display. I've noticed a...

    HI all, I have seen this little bug crawling around on my glass for about 2 weeks now. He is yellow on top, white underneath and has 1 pair of antennae(?). Was about 3mm long when first seen and is now about 8-10mm long. He seems to stay on the glass. Any ideas what he is?

    I have this gorgeous Australian Sea Apple that came in a trade/buy deal. This invertebrate is astonishing but too advanced for me so I am willing to sell it for $65 or trade it for a small Heniochus Butterfly and small Regal Angel. If interested let me know via PM only.

    Today I've noticed a strange creature hanging out on my rock. It was light brown in color with tree green spots on the back, spots have black and white outline on them. Total body length is about 1 inch, not very flat, kind like a little fat. Who could it be?

    Hey guys. I am thinking about sand-sifting creatures, and considering adding a cucumber and/or a sand-sifting star to my 65-gallon FOwLR tank. Here is what is already there: Three medium sized live rocks, with two (or more?) terebellid worms (this is what I've been told they are, based on my...
