Re:seahorse loss

Hyposalinity is a very well established treatment for Cryptocaryon and I’m sorry to hear it wasn’t more effective in your case, sir. All my condolences on your losses!

Cryptocaryon irritans are obligate parasites that cannot survive indefinitely in the aquarium without a vertebrate host. So if you let your seahorse tank lay fallow for six weeks without any fish in a, you can be confident that the parasites have been eradicated and it’s safe to stock the aquarium again. That will allow you to provide a thorough quarantine period for your African blue stripe pipefish to make sure they are healthy.

In addition to newly hatched brine shrimp, many pipefish will learn to accept frozen Cyclopeeze fairly readily so that is something you can consider in addition to Artemia. And of course they will also appreciate live copepods.

Best wishes with all your fishes, FERS4REEF!
