Yes, I do think it’s best if you relocate the chocolate chip starfish just to be on the safe side. If nothing else, that will assure that you don’t lose any more snails from your cleanup crew to the predatory sea star.
Okay, it sounds like you are ready have a nice selection of hitching posts for your ponies, and bright orange is a very good color for encouraging the seahorses to brighten up (especially the Sunbursts). The decorative porcelain pot sounds very interesting, and I can certainly envision the ponies using the handles as convenient perches, but I am especially intrigued by the sabertoothed cat skull, Lisa – it must be quite an attention getter! (I once had an aquarium with large red bellied piranha and one of the few decorations in the tank was a life-size human skull, which was artificial, of course, but very realistic nonetheless. That sparsely decorated piranha tank was always a favorite with my visitors and the skull was an amazing conversation piece.)
But I should explain that when you post your messages here on the forum, your e-mail address is not revealed, so I have no way of sending you the lessons for the training program unless you contact me off list and establish e-mail communication. Please send me a brief e-mail message to the following address, Lisa, and I will go ahead and send the lessons for the Ocean Rider seahorse training program right away:
Best wishes with all your fishes, Lisa!
