Re:Sick tank syndrome and running out of ideas


Woke up this morning and all is well. The male Kuda is more relaxed. He had some twitching but not as violent and he didn’t change colour. He ate his breakfast with his usual gusto! The female was swimming around but not all that interested in eating (I don’t think she likes the hospital tank). I hand fed her a few mysis shrimp. Her eye is looking clearer than yesterday.

The triple sulfa seems to be working.

I was reading on this website that Kuda’s are better placed with experienced seahorse owners. My poor fish! Even though I have had seahorses for two years, I still consider myself a beginner. When they are healthy and thriving, I may change my status to novice.

Another question: At what point would you consider a Formalin dip? Is it appropriate to dip all four seahorses as a precaution?
