Re:lethargic seahorse


Thanks for the answers.

As I said I’m new to sea horses and the lethargic one appears to be a male. The area below his stomach has turned dark almost black and he is mostly orange in color. I have not seen any dancing and or courtship behavior but I only got them about three weeks ago. Also what do you mean by pouch displays?

I will lower the temp. As far as the PH goes, I buffer every two days and it stays in the 8-8.05 range. Been trying to raise it but easier said than done.

He is still lethargic but as long as I can get him to eat, I guess I wont worry much. Is it common for a sea horse to prefer eating mysis off the bottom..

Thanks for the help
