Ragged sea hares are commonly found in different shades of green and brown with bright spots all over. With this beautiful appeal, it makes a captivating addition to any tank. Ragged sea hares grow up to a maximum size of 4 inches and should not be kept in a tank less than 20 gallons. Ragged sea hares have a peaceful temperament, thus should not be housed with predatory or aggressive fishes. Ragged sea hares are reef safe as it does not disturb any sessile invertebrates present in the tank or nip over any corals. Ragged sea hares almost exclusively feed on algae, so make sure to add live rocks that encourages the growth of algae. They take time to settle in a tank therefore, the acclimatization method known as the drip method is practiced. See our acclimation video for details. It acts as a janitor as it cleans of the algae from the aquarium, and makes a valuable addition into your tank. Ragged sea hares survive well in a water temperature range of 72-78 degree Fahrenheit and a pH of 8.1-8.4. Ragged sea hares cannot tolerate high levels of copper and nitrate content. That is why the tank water must be replaced every week with fresh water. Make sure to keep plenty of rockworks and marine plants in the tank to hide or to take refuge when required or stressed. The wastes of the Ragged Sea Hare can foul the water in the tank, so we recommend you to have a strong filtration system.
