    I recently purchased a Sea Hare from Aquarium Reefers in California. It has dutifully eaten all the algae in my tank and I wanted to make it an Iowa Reef Society Hare so that it can be shared by members in this area (and possibly outside).

    I have contacted Jeanette about this but haven't received any reply so I am going ahead with it.

    After it ate all the algae in my tank (in two days..) my peppermint shrimp was picking on it and it has slowed down. I think it will be ok but it may take a little while to recover.

    If anyone would like to use the Hare feel free to post below or send me a message.

    It is probably a good idea to post here so we know who the last person was who had it.

    Thanks!

    Jeff

    Hello...will it eat GHA and does it eat soft corals? If so I would like to try it.

    Thx

    Hi Mark. It specializes in green hair algae and it doesn't touch corals. It will eat algae that is on corals. They are very benign so the only problem you would have is if something bothered it. I'll pm you.

    Hi! I would be interested! I have a small biocube but am battling hair algae.

    Unfortunately last night either my peppermint shrimp picked on it or it died some other way.

    So sad for you! On another note, if you ever need to borrow a file fish - I have one. It cleaned up aptasia like nothing else!
