I don't know how normal or wierd it is but I have seen them do this at my lfs. Maybe it's a relocation thing. They stop eating long enough to move to a new area? lol Good luck with Christopher.

mine would do that also.. I would knock him off the glass and he would float down to the bottom.

Please run your water tests and post the results. When cukes keep climbing the glass to the top edge, it can sometimes be an indication somethings amiss with the water quality.

Cheers
Steve

He is now hiding in rocks and foraging on the sand. Everything came out fine. He really was only climbing halfway up and licking the glass and runnin around for a bit then went into some rocks and loafs around in there. Cool little invert to have imo.

I would still run the tests. Also be aware you really shouldn't keep a cuke in such a small tank. Typically they do best in a much larger system (100+ gal and only one to a tank) that has had enough time to become stable and mature. I would also not house one with a competing species. The brittle star and the cuke are after the same food resources, surface foods. The star being much faster and quicker to react, the cuke will not fair well long term.

Cheers
Steve
