cmor you are correct. I just wanted everyone to know that they should take a closer look at their animals and the wonders that are in plain view. I was amazed as I watched my featherduster feed for the first time. truely amazing.

I would love to do that

I found another one in the fuge about the same size. Definitely a mobile creature pulling in sand and moving around the sand.

How beneficial are they to a system or are they too risky to keep around? It's in the fuge so it's only "tank mates" are some snails.
I've seen the much bigger ones at the LFS but never seen anything like this.

Should I keep it or remove it?

Keepin git or removing it is up to you. There are differnen species of cucumbers with different levels of toxicity should they eviscerate/die.
You need to get your cukes identified by someone better at identification than me.
Please try getting some clearer pics (use the macro mode of your camera if available) and post in the Identification forum.
