    weird thing in aquarium

    hi guys i have this weird thing crawling/ swiming in my aquarium i cant get a picture because its semi transparent and wont show up (and my daughter broke my camera earlyer) but ill explain as best as i can its about a 1/4 inch right now and looks like a slug but it blows its frount side up and then throughs it out like a parachute and then sticks two feet things down and then slithers its back half up and repeats (sorta like a inch worm) i cant see any eyes or tenticals but its clear (a little off white but i can see right through it) no shell and its soft like gelly possible some stingers or toxin on it because when i squished one i got a rash and felt tinglely

    any ideas?

    A picture would help... I currently can not think of anything it could be.

    not sure I get your description, but could it be a type of nudibranch ?
    I found this image on google images:


    some of these are poisonous.. ( most aren't ) but some are.

    As a rule, unless you clearly identified a species, its best to use some precautions.. never know that thing could have stung bad.
    Like that article that was on NG a few months ago, some crew member picked up a cute little octopus not knowing what it was too well.. he had picked up a blue ringed octopus.. Fortunately, she didn't bite.. or it would have been bye bye crew member.

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
    planning next tank, possibly 60x30x20 on 2x plasma.
