Tiger Tail Cucumber

Scientific Name: Holothuria impatiens

Reef Compatibility: Yes

Minimum Tank Size: 30 gal

Max Size: 9”

Food/Feeding: Detritivore

Notes: Often known as "sand-sifting" or "sand-mopping" cucumbers. While most cucumbers extend feeding oral tentacles into the water to catch free-floating plankton, these cucumbers move along the bottom and use their sticky oral tentacles like mops to collect detritus, bacteria, microalgae and other food particles. Many will burrow into the substrate or extend their bodies out from the protection of rockwork to feed. With the exception of very large systems, it is best to limit cucumbers to one per tank.
