Dear Doug:

I know of no ready made kriesel nurseries you can buy off-the-shelf. Hippocampus reidi fry go through an extended pelagic phase, so for best results you’ll have to devise a kriesel nursery of some sort on your own. This can be accomplished a number of ways, some of which are quite simple to implement. If you contact me off list, Doug, I would be happy to send you detailed information on the various types of kriesel nurseries that are commonly used by hobbyists, along with a schematic diagram that shows exactly how to set up the popular goldfish-bowl kriesels. You can reach me at the following email address any time:

In the meantime, please check out the following thread on this site which discusses some other tips for raising reidi fry. You can find it at the following URL:

Best of luck with your prolific H. reidi and all their progeny, Doug!

Happy Trails!
