Yellow Sea Cucumber

Everyone told me this critter wouldn't do well in a nano. Ha ha. He's not only thriving. Today I noticed he split. I have 2 now. I honestly didn't even know this is how they multiply. I tried getting a pic but the lights r off in the tank and the flash made the picture terrible. I'll get a pic tomorrow

Strange. Apparently this is not how they normally reproduce. All I know is the yellow 1 I have is only 1/2 it's original size and there r now 2 of equal size. It's MAGIC LMAO

They will split either because a. they are happy or b. they are stressed

Huh. Well I don't think he's stressed because there's nothing that bothers him in this tank. But I've never seen him smile either. Guess its time I sit him down and have a heart to heart with him

Send a message via MSN to mr_X
When people say "stressed" they don't mean emotionally....they mean physically.

I know. Just having a bit of fun. Lol. But thanks Mr. X. Don't want anyone thinking I'm an idiot. Although I've been told that more than once
