Wow your thinking really has been "invert-ed" .

Not a fan of slugs. The little snot trails they leave annoy me lol.

It's the pnuemostome (sp?) which is basically the "breathing hole" or "blowhole" ... it's how they breathe.

We kept banana slugs as pets when we were kids (they're all over the place here and they get HUGE). They're actually quite intersting. Pink slugs would have been extra cool!

What happens when you lick a banana slug?

How I feel about non-planted aquariums.

Hilarious Nubster, that made me laugh.

And technically this sub forum is "Shrimp & OTHER INVERTEBRATES" so I do believe that would qualify as an "other invertebrate" even if it does look gross or get Nubsters dog excited.
