Re:A good list of meds?


Thanks Pete for the correction, I find it very interesting indeed! The Elephant ear that I planned for the seahorse tank is in another saltwater tank of mine, and I have observed a mandarin perched all over it, a blenny swim in and out of it and a wrasse hover in it and never had a problem. In fact, I was feeding a cleaner shrimp a piece of raw shrimp (cannibal! as the kids would say) and he sat within the elephant ear and ate his food. I’m not suggesting that there isn’t a possibliliy that something could happen when I am not looking, but I must say that I was quite surprised to read (and do further research) about this coral that I’ve raised with no idea that he could be dangerous! Here’s what I have planned for the seahorse tank, most of which I already have on hand ready to move into it:

Red tree sponge
Red gongonian
some awesome red macro algae (not sure what it is, but it grows like a little tree attached to some rock)
orange paddle sponge
sun polyp coral (loves to munch raw shrimp)
Alveopora coral (had it for several months now, and seems to be very happy, plan to keep it up current of any soft corals)
plate coral
fuzzy mushroom coral
clove polyps
various zoos attatched to the live rock I will move from a smaller tank
snails and more snails
exactly 11 hermit crabs, very small in size
one sea hare
2 sexy shrimp
2 saltwater acclimated mangroves
pods and macro algae in the aquafuge

And of course, the 4 seahorses I plan to get, and three fish I have waiting:
A bicolor blenny, a sixline wrasse, and a green mandarin that eats cyclopeeze. (woohoo! My other one will eat mysis and brine too!
🙂 )

I can hardly wait to order the seahorses!!
