Red and black seacucumbers are a peaceful reef inhabitant that will feed on what it scavenges from the sand bed, with that in mind it is only suitable for tanks with a reasonable sand bed. Sifting and turning the sand makes it a useful part of the clean up crew. Best suited to established tanks with a sandbed of two or more inches.
Like other sea cucumbers they're able to release toxins when very stressed or when dead and potentially poison the aquarium, this is however a very rare and unlikely event.
Due to variations in species your item may not be identical to that featured in the image, we do however ensure the species is correct and that the markings and colors are very similar.
