Re:Ok, here we go… awaiting arrival



Your right, my mistake was to take them out of the original water…. I did substitute some water, but obviously it was not right….

Before I continue with the shrimp…

Both are eating good this afternoon. At first I could only get the female to eat, but with her I got a pretty good technique down packed. After she downed about 7 shrimp I thought I’d try my newly found method with him and bingo, he went after the shrimp. I got about 5 in him. After this they didn’t seem as eager to "hunt" the shrimp. So, I thought enough for now.

My method… well, they have hooked themselves on the cord of one of my power heads. for some reason the exact same spot as the others always did too. Anyways. at first I this this is the worst place to be because it is was up high. But, now it was the best place.
I have a very clear turkey paster. I put on shrimp in the baster and held the baster up against the glass where the horses were perched. I let a little water in the baster and made the water move. The shrimp began to swim but couldn’t get out. as soon as the horse went to grab it I tilted the end of the baster a bit away from the glass allowing the shrimp to escape into the awaiting sea horse. I’m hoping this method will work with the frozen shrimp.

I will try this, since my shrimp are diminsioning fast… I will salvage the rest as you said, but I won’t have a lot to last even so.

If this does not work with the frozen shrimp Plan B is to order some more shrimpt overnight. I know this will cost me a pretty penny, but at least I will have some more time to train them to eat the frozen shrimp.

I am sure you can tell, he is doing fine. He is breathing normally and was very interested in hunting and did eat 5 shrimp. I don’t know if this is alot for a sea horse or not, but I think it was great!! I am sooo happy.

Do you think my back up plan to get some shrimp ASAP on Monday or Tuesday if I can’t get them to eat the frozen one will be ok??

Or would you recommend ordering some tonight no matter what?

I am sooo excited!! THEY ATE!!!!
