Sea Hare

I bought a Sea Hare two days ago and woke up this morning to find it dead. Are these normally sensitive? Or do they tend to be hardy? I want to get another, but I'm a bit hesitant now.

I acclimated mine for about 2 hours before putting him in and haven't had a problem with him. it's been about 4 months so far. I happen to really like the sea hare so I can't recommend against getting another one. just make sure you have enough algae for him to eat.

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

The blue spotted ones tend not to do as well. In my opinion the uglier they are the hardier they are haha, the ugly ones are cute in their own way anyways

Finally got another sea hare. This time I got the brown one. It's been one week and it seems to be doing fine! Thanks for the help!

it needs plenty of algae to survive.

i don't think those are sea hare eggs. the hare would need a mate. glad to hear it's doing well though.

If you happen to run out of algae get algae sheets or something like that. Good Luck!!!!!
