Re:Seahorse Training Program — get certified now!


Hi Pete,

My husband and I have set up a 35 gallon tank about 2 months ago and have many beautiful corals in it. It also has some emerald crabs and a coral banded shrimp. We have realized that this may not be the best environment for seahorses (probably too strong a current, aggressive crabs, and stinging corals) so we have just set up a 14 gallon tank (18 inches high) which will be exclusively for seahorses. We will have hermit crabs, and snails but not emerald crabs or shrimp. And would you recommend any type of live coral? We have an orange artificial coral for a hitching post. Also we have a whip (which died in the other tank). What else would you recommend for hitching posts (anything living?)? We would like possibly to have two sets of mated pairs from you. I was considering a couple of pipefish but I see that they need more of a cave and a larger tank so this probably isn’t a good idea.

I (we) would very much like to take your training course. Please let me know what else I need to do.
