Re:Hi and feeding station

Pete Giwojna

Dear caropr:

Other than the fish tray you mentioned, which is out of stock at this time, I don’t know of anyone else who is offering a ready made feeding station suitable for seahorses at this time.

However, there are a number of artificial corals available that look perfectly natural and lifelike in a marine aquarium, and which make outstanding feeding stations that require no modification whatsoever and can be used just as is.

For example, the beautiful Velvet Stone Coral (Montipora capricornis) in dark pink from Living Color (item #261) makes an ideal elevated feeding station for seahorses. It is a type of artificial plate coral that has the shape of a shallow bowl measuring 6" L x5.5"W x3.5"H on a short stalk. The rim of the coral formation provides convenient hitching posts for the seahorses, whereas the sunken interior neatly contains the frozen Mysis and keeps it from being whisked away by the water currents. It’s a very attractive coral formation that resembles nothing more than a giant rose in full bloom it is available from a number of retail outlets for retail price of $28.95.

Under the circumstances, I think your best bet for a ready-made feeding station that requires no further modification would be to obtain a suitable artificial coral with the proper shape such as the Velvet Stone Coral (Montipora capricornis) mentioned above.

Best of luck finding the perfect feeding tray for Snoopy and Clara!

Happy Trails!
