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

Sea hares are giant slugs pretty much. lol they will eat through an entire tank of algae in days. I supplement his food with algae sheets now since I have like no algae anymore. he's also grown from about 2 inches to probably over 6 in just about 7 months

Not a blenny lover? pshhhhst... Look at this blenny and tell me he isnt cool looking

there are a lot of fish that i think are cool looking but never really wanted, esp lionfish i love the way they look, but they just dont happen to play nicely... blenny's: i was like they're neat, but not for me.

btw i think it needs to be my sons fish cuz he threw a huge fit when I tried to move away from that tank... I was able to get him to calm down when their tortoise started down the aisle.

Nope, Bob is quite gentle and just slides around the tank. But some sea hares "ink" which can be a very very bad thing. I have handled bob several times and he has yet to ink. I'm not even sure if Bali sea hares ink at all from what I have read.

Was wondering about that. Was thinking about getting one for the 210 when it's up. But still not sure. Just think the sea hairs look cool.

The sea hare is so ugly he's adorable! he feels like a big marshmallow! Just have to really watch him to make sure he doesnt get sucked in by anything. Mine has been really good, he even cleans the powerheads while they are running which makes me very nervous. They dont' often last long in an aquarium though, either due to starvation or getting sucked up in stuff. I've been very lucky with mine. I also have found him floating around on the top of the water a few times and have had to "rescue" him so that might have played a part in his longevity.
