I am thinking about getting a sea apple for my tank. I have, assorted soft coral, scooter blenny, and clingfish. How hardy are they? And when they die naturally, do they release toxin? Or is it when they get eaten only? :arg:I have had a sea hare die and no adverse effects on the tank.
Thanks!

lol i had a sea hair climb down the drain and plug it, causing over flow when i was not here, and he did not release toxin either. i asked lfs about this, and the fellow told me of all the sea slugs they had ever got in, only one inked, and it was when he first put it in the tank.

They only eviscerate when they are stressed. Not if they starve. The toxin is a piscine toxin, in that it will only kill fish. But, the sudden overload of death and nutrients can cause other problems.

My Pentacta anceps closes up for about a day after a water change but is fine after that. And there is usually a 1-2 degree change and 0.001-0.002 change in salinity at first. And mine is very closely related to a sea apple.
