Re:New Seahorse "sick"


you didn’t by any chance release the water from the shipping bag into your tank when you realeased your seahorses, did you? that will cause an immediate ammonia spike such as what you describe (or it could be from increased bioload). At very high levels, ammonia CAN cause "burns"such as you describe. Definately do the meth blue in a hospital tank, but you need to do large water changes EVERY DAY or the ammonia will go high very quickly in a small tank (do I sound like i know what I’m talking about from experience?). Also with ammonia that high, I’d be worried about your other ponies. If any so much as scratch themsleves with their tails I’d put them in the meth blue too. do a large water change to gett ammonia back to 0 immediately. good luck, keep us posted
