Dear Tammy:

Thanks for the update! It’s great to hear that you’ve been having such outstanding success rearing your Hippocampus erectus fry, and that the second batch of babies seem to be doing even better than the first brood. Just be patient with your six-week old juveniles and you will eventually be able to wean them onto frozen foods. Once the first of the youngsters begin to accept the minced Mysis or Cyclop-eze readily, the others seem to learn from their example and are usually quick to follow suit.

Yeah, maintaining good water quality in your nursery tanks and keeping up with the endless appetites of all those hungry horselets can be a full-time job, all right. When they are receiving feedings of live food every couple of hours throughout the day, keeping up with the feeding regimen is quite a dusting challenge, and even more so when they are making the difficult transition from Artemia nauplii to frozen foods. But nothing is more rewarding than having a tankful of healthy juveniles to show for all of your effort.

Best of luck weaning your youngsters onto minced Mysis, Tammy! Keep up the great work!

Happy Trails!
Pete Giwojna
