Sea Apple

WOW! Beautiful! However, this is not a good addition to your tank. The Sea Apple - Pseudocolochirus violaceus - is a very interesting creature to observe as it filter feeds from the particulates flowing through the tank, doing so methodically and beautifully.  However when (not if) this creature dies, it may very well take out the rest of your livestock at the same time (depending on tank size). NOT Reef-safe

Here's a great article about the sea apple, a member of the cucumber family: http://www.advancedaquarist.com/2003/3/inverts
