We ship both multicolored and yellow caribbean sea cucumbers under this item. They both can grow to a length of 6 inches in captivity, but are sent around 3 inches. They are excellent sand stirrers, and will consume algae and detritus building up on your sand bed. As they crawl around they take in dirty sand, and excrete clean sand back into your tank. They are easily cared for, but will not tolerate high nitrates or any amount of copper based medications like most inverts.
Pictured is the yellow variety. If you want us to try to get a yellow one in your order, please let us know, and we will try to accommodate you. However, there are no guarantees we will have one in stock, and may have only the multicolored species when you place the order.
They should only be kept in tanks that are 40 gallons or larger.
This species requires UPS Next Day Air or Express Mail and does not qualify for free shipping.
