Dear Jamie:

You’re very welcome!

It’s very unlikely that the seahorses you obtained from your local fish store in Australia were Ocean Riders, since they only ship their livestock within the Continental USA, but I can certainly understand why you might think so. Most seahorses are very similar in overall appearance and it is subtle differences in the size and shape of their coronet, fin ray counts, spinal development, and number of trunk rings and tail rings that distinguish the different species. So it takes a very trained eye and lots of experience to be able to determine which species any given seahorse is at a quick glance or even from a picture. But I will keep an eye out for the photographs and do my best to identify your new ponies.

Okay, I have received your e-mail and you are now enrolled in the Ocean Rider seahorse training program. You should have received the first lesson earlier today.

Best wishes with all your fishes and thank you for the kind words, Jamie!

Happy Trails & Happy New Year!
