seaslug captive breeding

Postby angi » Thu Jun 02, 2011 4:50 am

Greetings from germany,

some time ago my friend Tom told me, that he has found many baby seaslugs. He has a huge enclosure and most of the tanks are without flow pumps. He has adult Dolabella and Aplysia there.

And now he told the babies are growing rapidly. Altogether approx. 400! Some almost shall be as big as cigarette boxes by now.
I find this report extremely interesting. This shows anyway which high breeding potential lies still in front of us.

I am sorry that he has not documented the development of larvae. I think these have eaten on PhycoPure. Tom has sent me this 2 pictures.

Very nice.
Aren't they supposed to be very good at removing algae down to the rock?
There should be a market for those.
I need some of those for Green Acres (my 220 gallon reef tank).
