MIke,

Also what do you mean by pouch displays?

The male SH will fill his pouch with water, deflate,fill ,deflate…….. In an effort to show the female how many eggs she can put in it. he’s saying "hey look at meB) " like a rooster strutting around trying to impress the hens. Beleive me, when you see it, you will know. The proverbial light will come on. Very facinating to watch. Often, while he’s doing his puoch display he will change colors right before your eyes, this is also done to impress the female.

Watch closely, if they have bred you will see his puoch grow daily. Till you awake one morning and find babies swimming about.

Is it common for a sea horse to prefer eating mysis off the bottom..

They’ve all got different personalities. I’ve got a pair+1 in a tank. Two males and one female. The two have, mated and the third will wait until the mated two eat before he eats. He often tries to court the LAdy of the tank, and is chased away by her mate. One of these day’s I’ll get him a GF.

Best of luck
Kris
