That thing is so ugly its cute! I think he will take care of it for you but its still a band aid, you need to find out whats feeding the Bryopsis. What did your Wife think of the Sea Hare?

Mrs Y would love to have one in her tank, but it's the problem of keeping it fit and healthy in her small system.

Maybe we should all put some money into a pot when the next meeting happens, and buy a ETAK Hare that can carouse the tanks as and when needed!

I tried that with mine and had no takers. It ate all the algae and disappeared. I thought sure someone would take it but I had no replies and deleted the post when I couldn't find it anymore.

I can tell you the sea hare likes red slime algae. I always get just a tiny bit where I dont have good flow, and he just finished that. He still hasn't finished the Bryopsis. If he doesnt, I have some salt waiting for him. LOL

LOL, I cant seem to get rid of my algae yet, going to be placing an order with liveaquaria for about 30 snails, shrimp and some other items I was at $97 affraid and stopped as the total was climbing fast Smile. it was just to see what it would cost me on payday to order.. I am going to wait until it gets a little warmer so fish will travel better I hope.

This sea hare would probably take care of most. He still hasnt taken care of the Bryopsis. He ate a little of it, but not even a 1/4 of it. That was when I first put him in. He hasnt touched any of it since. Sad

Great News everyone. I looked in my tank this morning, and most of it is gone (about 70%)! I was a little nervous at first, but it's going to work. That was a good call, I appreciate the help. Thanks for the HELP! Very Happy

Just wanted to tell everyone that the sea hare is Amazing! The Bryopsis is 90% gone. He will eat and clean up any algae you have in your tank. He blows away any crab or snail. He's a one man cleaning crew! cheers
