Re:seahorse struggling to swim

Dear pattsy:

You’re very welcome!

It’s good to hear that the seahorse that was struggling is doing better today. He should continue to improve as long as you maintain optimum water quality, so be sure to continue to check the ammonia and nitrite in the aquarium and be prepared to perform a water change if necessary to keep the ammonia/nitrite at zero.

In the meantime, the airstone should help to keep the water well oxygenated, but it would be a wise precaution for you to obtain some of the Kordon methylene blue to keep on hand just in case it’s needed.

Here’s hoping both of the seahorses recover completely, none the worse for wear, pattsy.
