Dear Pete

Thank you so much for replying and giving me such an excellent class about seahorse pregnancy physiology. I believe that it will be useful to other members of this forum too. I’ve already read many other lectures from you, and it’s an honor to me to deserve your kind attention.

In fact, these seahorses are young and they were introduced in the tank about 4 weeks ago. Thus they are not yet well acclimated. They have been fed twice a day with frozen mysis. The aquarium is also relatively "young" , about 4 months, but it conditions are excellent, as we’ve been closely monitoring main parameters, such as temperature (24-27 oC) , pH, nitrite, nitrate, NH4+, Ca2+ and Mg2+, KH, density. There are also many healthy corals and a good cleaning equip in the tank.

After have read your explanations, I can believe that, at the next breeding cycle, when the seahorses will be less stressed, the pregnancy will be successful!

Thank you again for the magnificent and clarifying explanation, and also for your kind wishes about my seahorse’s future! Sorry, for my English faults, and for my “personal” writing style. 🙂

Sincerely yours


PS: By the way, the seahorse woke up this morning hungry and had a normal day! Fortunately!
