I guess it depends on the kind of sea hare and the kind of tank you have. For example, my tank is a macro algae and seagrass tank. The sea hares I have eat macros. They have almost wiped out one species of caulerpa that I'd prefer to keep. That's why I do not want them.

I suppose if you had a micro algae problem and your sea hares ate micro algae, you would want them. But what happens when thousands of sea hares run out of food?

I love natural solutions. But that is a huge egg mass. Thousands of anything bigger than pods is a bit much in the confines of an aquarium.

I'm not a sea hare expert, so I may be overlooking something. Why WOULD you want them?

As many naturalists and environmentalists have suggested, we should set aside our arrogance,
our desire to conquer and control everything, and walk hand in hand with Mother Nature. -Walter Adey
