Did you not notice it before? Or is your tank a new set up? How long had you had the lion?

Trust me, it wasn't the slug. I've had many of these things come in on uncured rock and they do just fine. They are pretty resilient, and since the rock was cycled enough to add fish to the tank, it was fine for a slug also.

If I ate coral I'd live in the coral, that's why I dip my coral to kill any pests ect. Coral is super expensive (here anyway) and the last thing I need is some weird reef slug munching on them...lol

Well, if you added the eel and it hasn't died yet and you didn't do massive water changes and run carbon to remove the toxin, then we know it wasn't the slug.

+1. Housing a black ribbon eel is questionable even in an established tank let alone a new tank. Id suggest slowing it down a bit and doing alot more research before attempting to establish your sw hobby. Between the questionable rock, new tank, and lionfish death, it seems you may be traveling down the wrong path

Black ribbon eels are just juvenile blue ribbon eels and are one of the most difficult animals to keep. They have a very poor survival rate in captivity. I agree you should definitely research more before adding stock to the tank. Good luck with the eel.
