Re:Parasites/using the WRONG products!


Fish finder and Pete,
I am so sorry to hear of the seahorses’ death. I had two ocean rider seahorse, Harry and Berniece. Harry was my favorite, he was a beautiful purple color. He started to not eat early last week and it appeared as a weak trigger. I thought about treatment for several days, so I decided on freshwater di (he had not eaten in about 3 days). I used r/o (reverse osmosis water) which I use in their tanks. Harry was okay in the FW but started to thrash, but stopped and did this only twice. I left him in the water dip for about 10 minutes. I let him back in the water,he stared to swim and went to the botttom of the tank.Then he thrashed around and swam over to a corner and laid his head down and then died about 30 minutes later.
I do not know what happend and I feel that I also did everything I was supposed to. he did n’t go verylong with out food and was courting Bernice heavily. His FW dip contianer of water had string and white dots in them afterwards. he did heavily breathe and spent much of his time at the bottom of the tank. He was defiantely sick. Now, I get online (last month mustang specials still were 199.00. Now, it is a small fortune with no more availability. I am heartbroken and I want Harry back. I truly loved him, he was so sweet. I will never fresh water dip again.
