Thank you again Pete
I suspected some sort of trauma, she has had the cloudy and swollen eye for a couple of months now. If I leave it for too long, she loses her appetite so whatever it is, it is causing her some distress. Could this be secondary infection? If you don’t mind, can you send me the instructions for encapsulating shrimp. This seems like a good option. If you are interested, I can send you the pictures of her eyes. I appreciate that you are busy, so not offended if you don’t have time. I have tried to post them following the instructions in the thread with no luck.
She is eating very well now but I have to put the food behind her, she doesn’t seem to see it when it is in front of her. Also, she stalks her shrimp from underneath and has a very loud snick. The good news is that she is eating a lot of them and I am happy to feed her as much as she wants.
She has never been a good eater. She was vrey small and scrawny when she arrived and it was difficult to get her to eat. A mix of hand and force feeding has kept her going but she is still much smaller than the other two H. Kudas.
I was told that I was buying captive bred seahorses, but I am not so sure with her. I am very sad to think that she had a happy life in the ocean and now she is stuck in my aquarium so I will do my best to make it worth her while.
