Anyone kept Blue spotted sea hare?

Got one of these in Houston, a nice black one with sapphire blue spots. Acclimated it to the tank and have not seen it since I put it in the tank on Thurs night. I read that they can bury themselves.

Re: Coral Light Acclimation

I changed all 8 of my T-5 bulbs (39 watt) in one swoop and had no losses or bleaching. SPS, LPS and mushrooms fine. Algae started growing faster though.

Re: PRICE DROP!complete 55g setup w/ live rock $300

Nice tank and stand. Someone should grab this deal. I would but there is no more room for aquariums in the house. Wife would not go for it.
