Re:bloated seahorse


Thank you so much for your help and all the information you have given me. I have tried to massage his belly and it goes down but when I stop it inflates again so I will have to try something else you suggested. Is the aperture the hole below the chest area where the babies come out? Not up on all the parts of the seahorse quite yet. Can I put a very small syringe into the side of his belly and suck the air out that way? He seems to be used to me doing that and doesn’t fight it any more. But I tried to put the syringe in the hole above his belly and below his chest area and he went crazy and it seemed to hurt him so I stopped doing that. I hope you understand what area I am talking about here. Again, thank you for your help with this.

One question here also. How often do I have to change the water and sand? Is the changing of the water more inportant than the sand is? And is there a tester kit that I should be using to make sure that the ocean waster is the way it should be for both of them? Thanks again.
