Re:Seahorse can’t suck food


Hi Peter – many thanks as always for the helpful reply – I have transfered my kuda to the sump so she can try and get the food without the others taking it from her and also she has solo access to any copepods/rotifers that are in there – she has definately not got enough suck to pull the food in but as she is not breathing heavy etc I am hoping that it is mechanical and it will right itself and she will get her suck back soon but it’s not looking good as she can’t even suck it to her as it’s passing she waits for it to land and then try’s to suck it up with not much success 🙁 only gets a few tiny bits – will give it another day or so then try and hand feed her but not quite sure on how to hold her properly to do this so that she will take the food and don’t want to stress her any further so any further advice on this would be appreciated – will keep you informed as to her progress – many thanks Judy
