Re:Sea horse tank ?

Pete Giwojna

Dear Lynn:

I would be happy to help you set up a nursery tank for your baby seahorses, but the type of nursery that works best depends on the type of seahorses you have and whether or not the babies are benthic (orient to the substrate and hitch to objects right from birth) or pelagic (undergo a free swimming or planktonic stage of development). Can you please tell me what type of seahorses you are raising, Lynn? Also, are you interested in a nursery tank for raising the newborns or a rearing tank for growing out the juveniles (or both)?

If you can give me just a little bit more information about the species of seahorses you have and how old the babies are, I can give you some good suggestions for setting up a suitable nursery tank to maximize your success at raising the fry.

Best of luck with your seahorses and their babies, Lynn! Please get back to me with the additional information right away.

Happy Trails!
Pete Giwojna
