FAMA 2002

Horse Forum - September 2002

Hi Neil,

At one of the sea life centres a disturbing new fact was laid out with the usual ones about the T.C.M and trinket trade. It stated that for every million seahorses caught for the pet trade only 1000 would live beyond 3 months. This is very disturbing if it is true. Is it??

Thanks, Alan

Hi Alan,

FAMA Forum - October 2002

Dear Alisa,

I am planning on setting up a ten-gallon tank for dwarf seahorses and I have heard a lot of different recommendations for substrate. Some people have mentioned that a bare-bottom tank is best, while others recommend crushed coral or sand. Would you give me your opinion on what you feel is best?

Thanks,Kent Robertson.

Dear Kent,

This is a very common question that many new seahorse hobbyists ask and I am very glad you have asked me this. I will try to clarify some of the pros and cons of different types of substrate.

Dear Neil,

I have been told that seahorses are very hard to find in the wild because they have all been taken for use as medicine. I would like to breed them so that I can release them back into the wild. It seems like this is the best way to help the seahorses. Why don’t we all get together and release captive bred seahorses into our local waters so we can help save the species?? This seems like a great idea to me. What do you think?

Thanks Barbara L

Dear Pete,

If you have a pregnant male should he be removed from a tank with a bio filter and protein skimmer to prevent babies from being sucked up through either? Thanks,

Maureen Riberdy
