Reply To: Fire reds

Dear Desa:

Two characteristics set Fire Reds apart from other Ocean Rider types: their substantial size and their unusual coloration, Louis. These blazing beauties are very large, solidly built seahorses, and boast the sort of fiery colors rarely seen in other seahorses. Fire Reds get big, 8-10 inches when fully grown, and their price tags are equally hefty.

They are best suited for experienced seahorse keepers with large aquariums of 50 gallons or more that are dedicated seahorse tanks. A large aquarium is required to allow them to reach their maximum growth and is very desirable for the home hobbyist because the larger volume of water in the aquarium of 50 gallons or more provides better stability and a bigger margin for error.

As for what size they are when they are shipped out, that depends on what is requested when you make the purchase. For instance, if you request a subadult in the special instructions on the online order form, Ocean Rider can send you a young Fire Red that is around 3-5 inches in total length, depending upon availability. Or if you want a mature adult, the seahorse farm can send you a large Fire Red that is 6 inches or more in total length…

If you contact me offlist at the following e-mail address, Desa, I can send you a lot more information about the Fire Reds, including several representatives photographs:
