      Sea Hare bloated?

      Tank size-40g
      Age of tank-1yr
      Lighting-2/t5 bulbs with reefbreeder 24led
      Salinity-1.025
      Water temperature-76-77
      Nitrites-0
      Nitrates-5
      Calcium (If applicable)-450
      Magnesium-1450
      Alk or pH-8.0
      Dosing anything?-phytoplankton/ kalk for ph.
      Any recent changes to tank- swapped out 1 ATI coral blue plus for ati attinic bulb.
      Inhabitants (fish)- 2 rass 3 fire fish, 1 fire shrinp, 1 peppermint shrimp, 3 springer damsels.

      So I recently picked up a sea hare for my algae a few weeks ago, he has been doing great, but this morning he was floating around the bottom of my tank and looks like a balloon about to pop! I put him in a quarantine tank and now he looks to be ok he straightened out but he is as stiff as a board not sticking to anything. Any thoughts on what is happening? His regular habit was to graze then sleep for a few days, rinse and repeat, but today I thought it was dead.

      So what happened to the poor guy? Did he pop/explode/die? Maybe he just ate too much and had a tummy ache.

      He turned into a ballon and got stiff as a board. From what I was able to research, some GHA is toxic to them but they eat it anyways.
