Re:New 170 gal reef which are safe tankmates


Here is my opinion on the seahorses. There is only one place to really buy them and that is Ocean rider. I had purchased seahorses a few times locally when i first started and paid anywhere from 60.00 to 150 each. I lost each one anywhere from 1 week to 1 month after purchasing them. They stopped eating, stress, any number of reasons, they just did not make it. My forst ones from ocean rider were purchased about the same time as the store bought ones. They are still alive and doing well and were in the same enviroment as the ones i bought at various times from various stores. Most people I have encountered locally talk about how expensive the OR seahorses are which I find kind of funny, reason being is paying $60.00 for a new seahorse once a month from the local pet shop less expensive than a 1 time purchase of just about the same price. The OR specials work out to actually less money and the horses arrive in great health. I just recieved today 2 more sunbursts juveniles. They are beautiful and healthy. This brings my group to 8 from oceanrider, all alive and well. 4 from the LFS, all deceased.

hope this helps you
