Re:Seahorse not eating


Aiptasia: I’ve got a peppermint shrimp in my reef tank, and at one time I had one in my seahorse partition, but the shrimp in the seahorse side somehow escaped, and I’ve since found him in my refugium. So I need to capture him and return him to the seahorse partition; but there’s so much caulerpa in the refugium (and it’s in an awkward place to access) that I haven’t had much luck catching the thing yet.

Hospital tank: I’ve got a 5g spare that I can use. I have an extra heater and pump, as well at hitching posts, so this part shouldn’t be a problem. I can do filtration by water changes.

But: I don’t have medicine or live food. At this point, I doubt my seahorse will last another night. I suppose lower temperature and salinity in the hospital tank might delay things a bit. So perhaps it’s worth a shot.

I guess I’d be interested in your suggestions for tube feeding. Surely at this point, starving to death is the #1 concern.

Thanks again for all your detailed help.
