i wouldnt it gary since algae is the only thing they eat once it finishes eating all the algae in your tank it will die and it may die before that i had a bad problem with gha last year and tried one it ate about a third of my hair algae and then it just died on me but you might want to try gfo, phosban, phosorb, or something similar to get rid of your phosphates cause thats most likely whats feeding your gha

They will eat Nori after the HA is gone. Even with the use of PO4 exporting media sometimes the HA stays around because it can use the Phosphate before the media removes it. I kept a sea hare for years .

wow thats surprising how much nori did you feed it a day? it seemed like mine ate more than its weight in gha every day until it quit eating. and it did stick around for a little bit but after three to four weeks it was gone i even had some pop back up on a frag last month when i was too lazy to change out my gfo but i changed it out about 2 weeks ago and its almost gone but i also use more gfo than needed for my tank so that may be why

Sea hare drought in ATL

Anyone seen one? I've called almost all of the sponsors. Does anyone have one I can borrow. Free food while on loan.

Pure Reef in Alpharetta usually has them but they are out this weekend (I was just there). If you ask them, they usually can get them on Wednesdays. Jenn at Imagine Ocean in Canton usually has them, did you call her?

Have you tried turbo snails? Mine can smell GHA from a mile away. I had one chase down a new cerith that I introduced to my tank that had a little on him. I wish I had more GHA. Between the turbos and the yellow tang, I can't keep any.
