    Yep a sea hare was the ONLY animal I found that would get rid of the hair algae in my tank.

    Sea hares are miles and miles ahead of any snail I've found to get rid of algae. Really there is no comparison.

    nudibranches eat a variety of things like flatworms, aptaisia, sponges of different kinds, not many eat algae. i got 6 turbo's bunch of margaritas, vibex nassarus and a sea hare and some other black green spotted nudibranch that i don't have a clue what it eats but is still alive.
