    I disagree, we've had a sea hare in our system for about 2 years. As long as they're well fed, they should live.

    They are similar to Sea Cucumbers as they will pollute a tank if they die or become harassed About Saltwater Aquariums - Reef Tanks toxic substances.
    Then I continued to delve into this issue further and came up with these contrasting and interesting facts!!!
    Go figure!!! That is why it makes so much sense to read, read, and read somemore and to definitely research about an animal before chosing to purchase it!!!! Husbandry, compatibility, life expectancy etc. all need to be factored into the equasion before selecting and ultimately deciding if this is for you and your tank population!

    Sorry to hear about your loss. We see them often in the stores we frequent and think about getting one but like Reefer mentioned they are short lived. They could die somewhere in our aquascape that we could not get to, which is about 1/2 the tank...
