Sick sea hare?

I was working in my tank today and I noticed my sea hare'a head sticking out of the sand slightly. He apparently buried himself in the sand? I pulled him up and put him on a peice of seaweed and he started eating then wandered off. Is this a bad sign or do they just search for food or sleep in the sand bed?

I really don't want to come home to a nuked tank -_-

I dont know. I dont think there is enough to go on to say he is sick. Keep a close eye out on him though.

Another thing I noticed was when I picked up the sea hare, wearing nitrile gloves, he was slimier than usual.

Have some activated carbon on hand just in case. As I mentioned keep a very close eye out.
