Sea hair Should I get one for my reef?

Should I get one for my reef? I'll feed it seaweed when there is no algae for it.

Considering they can release toxic dye if startled you might want to worry more about other things thank the power heads in the tank. I know someone that has one in their tank but I wouldn't consider one for my tank.

Well the lights are on a timer and I have the blue ones first, dripped for 3 hours then let float for about 1 hour in my sump and released in tank with lights off, sump light was off too. And when the lights come on they are dim at first then brighten slowly. I don't think my clowns, lawnmower blenny, or scooter blenny will startle it too much, and got plenty of algae, and seaweed strips for them.

Well it's an old one with the small cone guard thing on it.. and the sea hair is 3-4 inches long and about 2 wide, What do you think? and I just got told that they need something better then seaweed strips when they run out of algae to eat, But they never told me what... Is this true or just bull crap?

I would go with a Saltwater Aquarium Sea Slugs for Marine Reef Aquariums: Lettuce Sea Slug, Green rather then a sea hare. The sea hare like most sea slugs is specialized in eating one thing... Caulerpa if you don't have lots of that then you have to try and train it to eat something else.

"If regular feedings of Caulerpa are not possible, it will need a supplemented diet of parboiled lettuce and dried kelp."
