    Found this worm like creature on my front glass this morning. It does not look alive, more like a clump of wool stuck to my glass.

    Ideas?????

    Looks to me something has spawned in your tank. What invertebrate could have done that?

    No Belinda. I'm sure he has got a sea hare. And only one as they are hermaphrodite.

    Your sea hare did spawn. The babies will hatch probably within a week and the larvae will be used by your fish as livefood. It's a good thing, leave everything as is.

    You see, I was right. He got one.;)

    So do you guys think i must remove the hare to my sump. I have read somewhere that they can let off poison into your tank when they die. I just do not want it dying behind my liverock, where I will have a difficult time getting to it?

    I'll err on the side of caution and remove it...

    Sea hare's don't leave anything poison in your tank it is quite safe..Mine got stuck in my powerhead..which sucked it up...it got a bad scar from the whole ordeal..it gave off some purple fluid..i nursed it back to health...and it was good for another 2 years...before it eventually paased on...i only realized it was dead when i saw the algae starting to grow...which was in my opinion a good couple of days...they don't leave anything poisonous that got be harmful to your tank and it's inhabitants...
