I read a thread (I think on Reef Central) where a guy had a 7 foot long one in his tank for years. They're pretty good at hiding and I think if they break in half they can survive and regenerate. I also saw a video of one in the wild being fed dead fish on a night dive. Scary buggers IMO.

From what I saw couple inches but never seen it fully out so god knows how big it is I'm thinking of using a tube to suck out that whole area to get it
