Transporting Nudibranch – aka sea slugs …
28th April 2016
The 120ml pots we sell are used to safely transport these little marine creatures all over the UK and more recently, around the world to hobbyists, the trade and to public aquariums, museums etc.
One of our customers breeds a certain type of nudibranch (sea slug); the scientific name one of the breeds is Aeolidiella Stephanieae, although commonly known as the Berghia Nudibranch.
TCC certainly opens our eyes at times to hobbies and specialities that we might before not have been aware of.
In the containers, the “green stuff” is a type of marine algae included during shipping to allow the little creatures to have something to cling on to which unfortunately makes the little chaps a bit tricky to spot so the other image shows what a nudibranch looks like close up. Justin, thanks for an insight into your world, and for the images.
Although these are delicate and very special little sea slugs, using the 120W pots as well as the right sized box and packaging, Justin ensures that the sea slugs are kept temperature controlled and always safely delivered.
