Congratulations on the new Ocean Rider seahorses that will soon be coming your way!
All of the current residents of your seahorse tank are fish that normally do very well with seahorses so I don’t foresee any problems in that regard. As an experienced marine aquarist and reef keeper, I have no doubt that our hardy, highly domesticated, eminently adaptable seahorses will thrive under your diligent, conscientious care, Kelley.
Just remember NOT to use drip acclimation or any other prolonged acclimation process when you introduce your new ponies to your aquarium. Following long-distance shipping all the way from Hawaii to the mainland, it’s important to use an abbreviated acclimation procedure that gets the ponies into their destination tank within 20 minutes (30 minutes of the variables) after you open the shipping bags, Kelley, for reasons we will go into a more detail after we establish e-mail contact.
Of course, I would be very happy to send you the Ocean Rider Seahorse Training Manual so that you can make sure that you are providing your new ponies with the best possible care.
However, the seahorse training is a correspondence course that is conducted entirely via e-mail, Kelley, so I will need you to contact me out the following e-mail address as soon as you can, and we can proceed from there:
In the meantime, best of luck with all of your projects, Kelley!
