My sea hare managed to devour all of the hair algae on this rock in less than 24 hours!:smokin:

I had a hair algae plague in my 10g. I bought one of those with the idea that I wasn't quite sure what I would do with him when he cleared up the hair algae. He completely irradicated it in about a week. then he got stuck in a powerhead. so it was nice because it got rid of my hair algae and then commited suicide in less than a week.

I have had Cousin Itt for several months now. It is surviving on borrowed rock and supplemental algae. I love to watch it forage though the tank. I am limited on what I can have in there with it though.

That sea hare did a good job! Too bad you don't have like an unlimited amount of rock w/ hair algae. I wonder if they would eat those algae sheets?

I tried running a ten gallon tank full of hair algae covered rock but it ate the algae faster than it could regrow.

I've been feeding it the sheets for over a month and it seems happy. It just happened to get a treat this weekend with one of Melissa's rocks.

Wow! How big is that hare?

It is usually about four or five inches long. When it stretches out it can easily double in length.
