Common sea cucumbers, Holothuria impatiens, come in a variety of colors including, yellow, brown and gray. These are hardy, reef safe cucumbers that are used in reef systems and refugiums to eat left over foods and organic matter. The average size is about 3″” to 4″”, but bigger and smaller are available upon request. They don’t bother any other invertebrates, corals, or fish, and not much bothers them.

These are the best cucumbers for cleaning up your sand bed. Unlike many cucumbers that slowly starve over time, these thrive in a reef tank and prevent cyanobacteria blooms in your sandbed. Every reef tank with a reasonable size sand bed should have 1 or more of these.
