The causes of cyano can be harmful to an entire aquarium. The big issue with seahares is that they are always hungry and usually starve to death in aquariums.

No, the cyano won't directly hurt it.

No. There is no guarantee a sea hare will eat your algae however. Your tank sounds like it needs a series of water changes and cutting back on feeding, more than another eating, pooping, critter. Cyano and nuisance algae is a symptom of high nutrient levels.

It's been a while since we've talked after I treated with the treatment the cyanno went away but after a while it came back. So if its true and my nutrient levels are high I've been doing water changes how else do I lower them? Any suggestions?
