    I have a tigertail. He does a great job. Nothing funnier than the poop!

    He climbed the glass last night. , wrapped himself around the return pipe & hasn't moved. ? Is that odd or normal. ? Was really hoping he may start in the sand bed ?

    I would say odd. Mine has not left the sand bed. It constantly is eating.

    We put him back on sand last night, and now we cant find him. So stupid considering how blood big he is. Will see if we can notice him when lights kick on .
    Thanks.

    They hide very well. You just have to look for the sand poop.

    Sea cucumber. Very bad if they die. You need an established tank with dirty sand.

    Yes. It's a sea cucumber. They can be toxic to the tank if die a stressful death due to incorrect parameters or aggression. But if they just die a natural death they are not a problem. They don't like nitrates at all so low nutrients are very important.
