Re:disease question


Sorry to hear of your loss. I went thru an almost exact situation. Only I did not have my first two horses as long as you. As a matter a fact, I purchased them as testers before my OR’s arrived. They were tank raised from the LFS. I had them about a month before the OR’s came in. They seemed to be doing fine, about two months after I recieved my 4 treasures, my original pair came down with fin rot. I immediately caught it, and treated them as Pete had recommended. I also lost both of them to the infection. It has been 8 weeks now and the Oceanriders are going strong. I have a friend who replaces her LFS crew about once monthly. I have come to the conclusion there is nothing like the immune system of Oceanrider Horses. I will never purchase another fish store horse, and strongly advise anyone else from doing so. I think you are going to be safe with your newest additions they seem to tolerate alot. I do keep mine on vibrance as well, but I think its in the breeding and care as well as their initial health that leaves a safety net against such problems. I just wanted to let you know my experience, and hope it gives you some comfort in knowing you will more than likely be okay. Thanks to Oceanrider for taking alot of the difficulty out of owning seahorses.
Good Luck
