    Weird day while cleaning out the tank. :D:D:D Besides the hundreds of ticked off Brittle Stars that were giving me the finger (Or tentacle), I found a weird creature (LARGE- 2+ inches) that may be a sea cucumber, a strange white anenome (I think), and noticed a few clumps of a weird algae in...

    I have three of what I'm pretty certain are sea cucumbers and a star fish that came on the live rock. I want to take care of them and make sure they're receiving food but I'm not sure how. Any advice would be great.

It is on the underneath of its body and I only noticed it because he/she was on the glass at the front of the tank. It appeared to look...

    i recently moved my sea cucumber from my 20 gal well established tank to my 29 gal that is about 5 months old and he seems to be getting smaller. i am assuming that it is because he has less sand(food) in him. are ther any other reasons?
