    Overall my ever lingering algae problems are slowly subsiding, but I was thinking of adding a sea hare to finish it off, but was a little worried that my Melanurus Wrasse would quickly make for tank emergency. Is that the case? Or is it one of those things where if I throw it in there at night...

    My wife recently discovered a string of "something" over the past couple days. After verifying it wasn't tube worms or really any other common critter, I found out that apparently Sea Hares lay eggs and mine has laid a considerable amount. So, naturally I have a couple questions. 1) What do I...

    So I tried to get a picture to upload but it blends in with my rock. I woke and and decided to take a look at my tank at night and noticed this "slug" just cruising on some rock. Looks like a green slug if compared to anything. based on description do you guys think it is just a sea hare?

    So yesterday I got a sea hare to help clean up algae until I got my phosphate reactor up and running. Well the last one I had loved to eat nori. But, my new one wont even touch it. What else could I try to supplement his feeding? Would macro maybe work? Or like steamed vegetables? Thanks!

    I just found this little guy cruising around inside my tank. He's only like an inch or two long. It looks like a baby sea hare? He moves like a sea hare, and has little ears like a sea hare. If it is, what do I feed him?

    Can anyone tell me what is up with my sea hare? It didn't look like this yesterday, but all of the sudden there is a yellow section in the middle of his "underbelly."
