Dear BT:

Pete Giwojna

Dear BT:

Yes, sir – I think that’s going to be a transitory problem and that the soft corals will soon become accustomed to the unwanted attention from the additional seahorses grasping them and using them as hitching posts. At least, that’s been my experience in such situations.

I will send you a document via e-mail that is devoted to the subject of “Seahorses in Their Reef Tank” so that you can download the document, save it on your computer, and then read through the information at your convenience. It’s an illustrated document and you will notice in many of the photographs that the seahorses are clinging to the soft corals in the pictures quite vigorously, yet the soft corals still have all of their polyps fully extended. They have become habituated to being used as convenient hitching posts by the seahorses and remained open nonetheless, unperturbed by the grasping tails of the points.

I hope things work out the same way with your soft corals, BT.

Good luck!
