Sea cucumbers rarely completely leave the safety of their burrow or cave, stretching out to service the area directly surrounding them, with an impressive reach as they stretch that defies the imagination.
Sea cucumbers have the potentional to poison tanks although this is very unlikely and rare, this would only usually occur if the animal was severaly damaged by being sucked into a pump, given where they choose to live it really is not a common experience.
Sea cucumbers are best kept in tanks of 150+ litres, with an established sand bed of 3cm or more.
