I wouldnt put a sea slug in a 10g tank. he will quickly run out of food and they like to roam. i have a seahare in my 125g and I have to supplement his diet with algae sheets. he also can get into powerheads and filters and turn into mush.

Why the desire for a sea slug? Any particular reason? I happen to like how ugly mine is it makes him cute to me. lol

Also they grow pretty quick. I;ve had mine since early this year and he was the size of a large marshmallow, he is now about 6 inches or more in length.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

WOW carey, I was looking into getting one too but 6 inches of rolling thunder in my 40 gallon seems like too much xD

I picked the smallest one they had too cause at the lfs they ahd ones bigger than mine is now. lol I knew it would get big before I got him. hehe Good thing he's in the 125g now. And like clockwork, about 7pm he comes out and hits the glass. I don't even have much algae but he is growing so fast! Oh, my little baby is growing up. rofl
