Re:standard seahorse noob intro


Hi Pete,
Thank you for the reply. I had decide to go with the mated pair of Sunbursts. They arrived Thursday(3 days ago), and have acclimated very well. They took to the frozen mysis the day after as they clinged to a Gorgonian patiently waiting for them to pass with the current, snatching them one by one as they crossed paths. So far they seem to be eating about 4 or 5 twice a day (8am and 5pm)
Thanks for the tips on the lighting schedule. I try to keep a natural environment with my reefs as well and have the lighting scheduled as follows:
(Actinic 8am-7pm, Daylight 9am-6pm, led(moon) 7pm-8am)
They are soo exciting to watch with thier unique deposition and characteristics. I am truly fascinated with these animals, and considering breeding in the future, but for now I will enjoy their company.
Thank you again for your valued infromation.
