    I love my Sea-Hare!

    I was at big al's just looking around the other day, and I saw this blobby rock moving around... I took a closer look and it was a sea-hare, a BIG one. I thought my aquarium was in need of some scavangers so I took it. Needless to say, I LOVE HIM (errr... it)!!!!

    This creature is the most active invert i have ever seen. He just motors along cleaning up algae, deterius, everything! And he dosent knock stuff over like those clumsy cucumbers.

    If anyone is looking for an interesting addition that'll work hard for his place in your aquarium, a sea-hare is definatly worth looking at.

    I'll post picture soon.

    I have also heard you cannot have a lot of water movement in your tank when you have a sea horse. They have a hard time fighting the current. Also make sure he is getting food, they don't move quick enough to get anything when you feed them most of the time.

    Goodluck.

    I have one, awesome critter for huffing down algae! This thing goes where it wants, when it wants. Don't know why anyone would say they can't take strong flow, they are able to crawl anywhere. Mine inhaled all of the GHA I had as well as all the pesky stuff on the rocks and glass.

    I don't think he has a sea horse.

    So far he hasent expressed any interest in any of my corals... just the poop behind the rocks and some algae. :biglaugh2

    No this isnt the one that got eaten, I dont have an anemone... ever since I woke up to my yellow tangs head sticking out of my carpet, I've hated them. :bawling:

    I got a black (dark brown) one from Ivan, I supplement his diet with nori and I also bought some fresh kelp from the chinese market, costs just under 2$ a pound, he really enjoys it (rinse it off in fresh water for a couple of minutes to kill extra stuff and freeze the leftovers).
