Re:Giving Birth

Pete Giwojna

Dear Billie:

Congratulations on your Christmas babies! All of the information you requested on feeding and rearing seahorse fry has been sent to the e-mail address you listed.

I would return the pregnant male to the main tank and allow him to give birth there in the company of his female, since that will be less stressful for him and he will remate shortly after delivering his babies.

There is little danger that your bottom scavengers or gobies will predate the newborn seahorses since they will gather near the top of the aquarium where they are attracted by the light, allowing you to carefully scoop them up and transfer them to a nursery tank.

Best of luck with your pregnant male in his progeny, Billie!

Happy Trails!
