Hi guys i have a bit of a dilema here i have a cucumber i bought he's very nice its a tiger tail, but its one foot long.....in my 150G . Someone made the remark that if he goes he could take my tank with it. Should i exchange it with some one with a bigger tank, just in case he starve in mine or do you have other options you can think of . I have another cucumber in there as well didn't expect that one to be that long when i bought it he was kinda in a ball sort of speak.

That's a huge B@@!H!

Even a smaller cucumber can bomb a tank. Not sure a bigger tank would make any difference.

Maybe the LFS would take it.

Ok well according to some , Tiger tail and Caribbean ones won't take a tank down , they say its a net myth. And thats the one i have ; this by the way how he looked when i bought it 2 weeks ago. But now , he makes almost the whole side panel 24" minus the rockwork, its 12"

But they also say that a foot long cucumber for an 8 weeks tank is too big. I didn't know he was that big. Like i said he was like in a ball sort of no more that 3-4 inch, and he then stretched out. I've already contacted the seller and he said he has smaller ones he can exchange for . So thanks guys we live and learn never though that he would stretch that long, no comment......sorry about the title i should of put sea in there....

That's a huge Tiger Tail, likely bready to spit. If you have one Tiger Tail now you will have 10 in a year. I wouldn't worry about the size.

I've accidentally had a few get sucked into my return pump with no issue. I had moved some into the refugium and they crawled out.

I got one from my friend a few years ago. It lived in a bucket for a few days and by the time I got it and was ready to add it into the tank, it had split into 3.

And yeah, with that title, I was half afraid I'd click on to a thread with an obscene Selfie [eeeek!]

JK!
