Re:Stocking first Seahorse tank…


Thanks, Pete.

Yesterday I only fed them about 10 of the live red shrimp, so it was hard to tell who was eating, although I did see some of them get eaten. Today I fed mysis twice. Most of them are eating very well, but the female sunburst did seem a little reluctant and only ate a couple that I saw. She may have been a little freaked out by the turkey baster. I’m trying to use a glass ashtray as a feeding station, and I did have a couple of them at it, but it’s too low and the nassarius snails are finding it first right now. I’d like to get something that’s a little more elevated so they can’t get to it so easily.

The seahorses are awesome. They’re so much fun to watch as the glide around the tank from post to post. They’ll try to hitch on anything, including each other’s heads! They seem to like the floating thermometer. They’ll hitch onto it and ride it around, try to pull it down with them. The way their color darkens and lightens is very cool too.

I’m very pleased with my new additions. 🙂
