    Without an holothurian or sea slug host they will quickly die.

    Thanks Vinny for that info. I was just curious, I did read about them having a relationship with a madoussa worm as well?

    Medusa worms are actually not worms at all, but are legless (Apodid) sea cucumbers.☺
    They are members of the Family Synaptidae in the Class Holothuroidea and the Phylum Echinodermata.

    I was fortunate to have access to some really great biologists and experienced hobbyists. ☺
    I have always been fascinated by the ocean and its many amazing creatures.
