are full of surprises and mysterious organisms that seem to appear out of no where! My favorite surprising and mysterious organism is Chiton. Chiton are molluscs, in the same family as snails, and we have quite a large one that pops up in our 92-gallon corner tank behind the counter!
Here’s our guy hanging out by some polyps. Walking by the tank you spot him! But walk away for a few minutes, and when you come back he is nowhere to be found! You probably won’t see him for a few more months. :) In your own marine tank at home, you may be discovering new and bizarre creatures for years and years, since the “live rock” is full of crevices hiding all kinds of organisms. Every day can be an adventure of discovery!
If you are interested in creating your own marine environment at home, just stop by the store or call and ask us about what you would need. It is so much fun!
