Please Note:  Any new fish purchased from us or from a local pet store should to be quarantined.  All fish from anywhere in the wild can be possible carriers of bacteria and protozoa that can lead to an infection in your system, so we always recommend that you use some sort of quarantine system prior to adding them to your system.  If you have a fish only system and can medicate the whole system, you may not need a separate quarantine tank.  If you have a reef system that cannot be medicated, a good ultraviolet sterilization system should prevent any kind of disease outbreak.  We medicate our system for bacterial infections and protozoans, but because we don’’t always hold our fish for long periods of time, there is no way to be sure all the protozoan cysts have been killed.  A little bit of prevention will save you lots of trouble down the line.

    Ordered one sent two. One is huge! Very intresting critter. Not many people keep them in stock it’s a pitty. They move very slowly and eat various algaes. Rather sinsitive to nitrates do best in well established system. Be very careful not to damage the fleshy mantle when taking them out the bag damage to the mantle can cause death to the animal. They like to flaten out and stick like a powerfull suction cup they can be difficult to remove once attached.

    Very cool. A lot bigger than I imagined he would be. Interesting to watch move slowly about the tank cleaning. Tip..do not acclimate in anything they can suck onto. They are impossible to remove from something once they cling. It was a battle of wills after my blunder but I now have him happily residing in my tank and I love him!!

    This is one of the coolest critters I’ve ever seen, pictures don’t do justice. The one I received isn’t drab at all, I see some pink and blue coloration, probably my led’s helping out. His shape reminds me of a US Navy LCAC (google it)
