Re:new seahorses

Pete Giwojna

Dear Sir:

When you do a dip in methylene blue, just use some of the aquarium water so that you know it’s at the same temperature, pH, and salinity that the seahorses are accustomed to and put a measured amount of the tank water an inert container such as a clean, plastic bucket or bowl. Then add the prescribed amount of drops of the methylene blue to achieve the right concentration for that volume of water.

All of the aquarium parameters look great — right where they should be — except that I would like you to reduce the water temperature to about 75°F.

Also, it would be very helpful if you can find out what species these Thailand seahorses are, so please ask your wife to inquire about that when she picks up some of the methylene blue.

Best of luck resolving this issue, sir. Shipping stress and ammonia exposure are normally entirely reversible so hopefully everything will go smoothly from here on out.
