Re:New 170 gal reef which are safe tankmates


I’ve never bought a seahorse from a LFS, but my neighbor did once, and at the time that they were moving the poor thing was suffering from GBS and couldn’t do anything but float at the top of the tank. I tried to give them advice on treatment, but with their cross country move they didn’t have the time (or effort) to do anything. Don”t know how it ever fared…..

I bought the mustang/sunburst special. My horses took 2 days to get here, as I live in rural Colorado and there just isn’t overnight service from Kona to here. I was SO worried about them. When they arrived the only one that looked worse for wear was the pregnant male mustang and THE VERY NEXT MORNING I had 43 fry in the tank, and he looked MUCH better… lol! I would like to go with a pair of Barbouri in the near future, and then my tank would be fully stocked. I’ve had them for 8 1/2 weeks now, and they are SO smart. Their names are:
Zack and Zoe, and
Jack and Chloe.

They are awesome. I’ve looked at many different sites and considered buying a seahorse from some other captive bred places, but I think my final decision is made, and once I can afford it, I am ordering a barb pair from OR. I might wait until Spring, so the weather is more stable.

Best of luck and keep us updated!
