Cucumbers

There are many forms of sea cucumber. Some are very colourful and ornamental, while at the other extreme there are some disgustingly ugly ones without colour or shapely form. For the aquarium we are likely to find only the attractive species ever on offer. The feeding habits vary from mainly filter feeding to detritus scavenging.
