Re:Pouch Emphyzema


🙂 Hello Pete and everyone else,

I’m happy to say my male erectus has recovered. I did the Diamox treatment along with the antibiotics for his tail and he is swimming with no difficulties and tail is healing very well. I put him back into the main tank. I might add he did not eat hardly at all while in the hospital tank. When I did put him back into the main tank he started to eat the following day and is now hunting and moving around the bottom of the tank, pretty much hanging around down there. Still not very active. I think that just might be his personality. Whew! I’m just glad so far he is doing well. Pete I have a question. I have notice kinda of a brown tinge on my seahorses. I’m not sure if this natural or some type of algae growth. Most of the tinge color is on top part where the body is exposed to more lilght then the rest. Should I be concerned? They all seem to be doing OKAY. Water quality is PH 8.2, salinity 1.024, Nitrates 2, Nitrites 0, Ammonia 0, temperature is 74 to 75 degress through out the day. I’m not sure if the vibrance 2 is effecting this. I hope I’m using the vibrance the right way. I use cold seawater to thaw out. The I take the Mysis with a net and add vibrance 2 with no water let it sit for about 3 minutes then I feed. I read the vibrance would be great for the invertbrates filter feeders. So I just assumed I did not have rinse after the vibrance was added. Please correct me if I’m wrong.
