Sea Cucumbers are excellent in reef and invertebrate aquariums at cleaning sand and glass of uneaten food and algae. Water quality must be maintained, and care must be taken with any water intakes/overflows to ensure that the Sea Cucumber cannot become attached to an intake or overlow and get killed.
