These are shallow water animals with translucent bodies walls prefer shadowy areas under overhangs, and/or sides of vertical walls. All require moderate nutrient rich currents, nevertheless, most should not be harvested for the trade, as they are difficult to maintain long-term. Many are shown here simply for their beauty, and should be left in the wild!
