  1. The ID had automatically charged as Thelenota ananas but this sea cucumber is Thelenota anax so I have deleted the spotting and re-added it as new. Could someone correct the ID to Giant/Amberfish Sea Cucumber, species T. anax? Many thanks! :-) Posted 3 years ago

  2. I think Ferdy will need to fix this. I created a new ID and it still picked up the wrong one from Wiki Posted 2 years ago
