Husbandry

This sea cucumber was identified as Chrirodota rigida (Order:Apodia).
Apodia sea cucumbers have no suction feeds, therefore often called footless sea cucumbers.
They have no breathing tufts, as they perform their gas exchange through their skin.

Chirodota rigida eats Detritus, which is why a tank should have a certain maturity (sufficient Detritus).

Synonymised taxa:
Chiridota eximia Haacke, 1880
Chiridota liberata Sluiter, 1887
Chirodota amboinensis Ludwig, 1888
