Re:Stocking first Seahorse tank…


Thanks for all the great advice everyone!

A couple of days ago I went to town with a syringe and some super strong kalkwasser. It’s not as easy as it seems like it should be, but it appears that about 50% of the ones I tried to get were killed.

I went and got 3 peppermint shrimp yesterday. I saw one start chowing on a smallish aptasia within minutes of introduction!

My skimmer arrived yesterday so I’ll be installing it today. It should be broken in by the time my horses arrive.

I have a new question…

Assuming that my horses settle in and start to breed, what do you do if you don’t want to raise the fry?
