Oh by the way, after all the reading ive done I still cant find anything that shows how to tell if it is stressed. For those of you who know cucumbers, how do you know if it is stressed? TIA

When its spewing out junk into your tank :P

Im not sure about signs of stress before it fouls the tank up, but Im sure someone here can shed some light.

I have had a sea apple in a hundred gallon tank for a little over two years now. Every now and then it will start to look unhappy and a tad shrivelly and I watch it VERY closely. I don't really know what to say except you will notice a difference.

From what I remember off hand, Pentacta anceps is what you have. This is not Pseudocolochiris, a Sea Apple. Pentacta, ime, spend majority of their time on the live rock, filter feeding. You WILL have to feed regularly with phyto or similar products; otherwise, they will continue to shrivel until there is no more. Pump intakes and aggressive tankmates could be a cause for concern, but they are not as sensitive as other species of sea cucumbers. They can be a beautiful addition if you give them the care they need (water quality and food) as in any other animal you house.
