Dear Kris:

Dear Kris:

Congratulations on your successful rescue, sir!

That’s a very difficult challenge to pull off successfully, Kris, and most home hobbyists who attempt to rescue wild caught seahorses that are being poorly cared for at their local fish stores do not fare nearly so well.

You have the right idea about putting the new pony through a strict quarantine period, Kris, especially if you suspect it’s a wild caught seahorse, and you are wisely putting it’s time in quarantine to good use by treating the new seahorse prophylactically as well as weaning it onto prepared foods. Starting it out with the phytoplankton/Mysis mash is a good way to gradually get it accustomed to eating frozen Mysis as a staple diet.

The new female sounds like a very beautiful specimen and I’m sure she’ll do very well with your captive-bred-and-raised stallion when she has successfully made it through your quarantine protocol, sir.

Best of luck with the new specimens, sir!
