    As far as I know from what I have read on the net and on other forums it is probably the best solution to hair algea and other types of algea. What I cant find is if its safe to the other inhabitants in the tank when the hare inks? I have a 800l setup, can anybody give advice?:slayer:

    Just saw three of them at a LFS. It is the ugliest thing I have ever seen. I've read they don't eat coral and are perfectly reef safe. The only problem is that they don't live very long (only between 6 - 12 months)...
