Re:my horses are on their way :)

Dear mom:

Thanks for the update! It’s a relief to hear that your new seahorses are doing much better now and eating well. Continue to be patient with Max and you’ll soon have him eating right out of your hand as well. Males are often more shy and retiring than the females, and need a bit more coaxing before they trust their keepers enough to be hand fed, but he should learn fast by following Ruby’s example.

Be sure to keep a close eye on the ammonia and nitrite levels in the new 55-gallon aquarium. Once the aquarium completes the cycling process with the aid of the BioSpira, and the ammonia and nitrite levels are back down to zero again, the seahorses should be out of the woods. Until that time, be sure to keep some methylene blue on hand in your fish room in case it’s needed to help counteract the effects of a spike in the ammonia or nitrate levels.

Best of luck with your new seahorses, mom!
