Re:New Setup

Pete Giwojna

Dear Grantman:

That depends on what seahorses you will be working with and what your purposes in raising them are, sir. There is a great deal of difference in the type of setup needed to breed and raise miniature species such as the dwarf seahorse (Hippocampus zosterae) and the larger breeds of seahorses. And you need different types of nurseries and grow out tanks for seahorses with benthic fry and seahorses that produce fry that undergo a pelagic stage of development.

Can you give me a better idea of what you’re breeding program involves, sir? I need to know what type of seahorses you want to breed and raise, and whether you are just raising them as a hobby to satisfy your own interests and maintain your herd at home or if you are raising them for a research project or something more ambitious.

If you can elaborate on your breeding program for me I will be able to give you some better advice.

Best wishes with all your fishes, sir!

Happy Trails!
Pete Giwojna
