Yellow cuke

Iíve had one of these guys for years. I donít know where he came from, but he is really cool. I feel kind of ashamed Iíve never researched him.

Heís grown a tad, but nothing dramatic. Heís about 1/2Ē long. He took up residence on a rock, and has never moved. For years.

He sticks his little food catchers out, eats a few times and closes up.

Iíve never done anything special for him, or bothered to learn.

Anyone know anything about these guys?

That’s kind of weird that it is still so small. I got a yellow one in my tbs rock that was around 1” when I got him. Two years later he is now about 8” long.
