Re:Sick horse


Alright, our other horse has been severely injured and has a sore on the left side of her head, her fin is also missing. We have two peppermint shrimp in the tank, could one of them have attacked her? She is really struggling. Once bitten, twice shy, having lost one horse and now possibly losing another I am VERY scared to buy any more sea horses. I cannot stand to watch any more die. Thankfully our local pet store didn’t get our sea horses in, so we asked them to please cancel our order. Currently in the tank there is one horse, a choc chip starfish, a sea hare and two peppermint shrimp. Is one of these dangerous? And if I want to purchase sea horses again what do I need to do differently to ensure that they live happily? Or should I just stay away from them completely? Levels in our tank are still good, and I’ve put very tall plants in our tank to help diffuse the current (it’s helping), but we haven’t been able to find a less powerful system yet. There are plenty of hiding places where she can feel safe, which also protects her from the current. Thanks so much for all your help so far.
