Dear Claire:

Okay, so far, so good.

Here’s hoping that the FormaGreen is effective in resolving the problem with your stallion’s dorsal fin.

If your hospital tank is located close enough to the seahorse tank so that he could see his tank mates, that will provide Tigger with some moral support while he is undergoing his treatment. If not, then you might consider using the old mirror trick to boost his spirits while he is in isolation instead.

The mirror trick simply have always taping a mirror up against the aquarium glass where your pony can get a good look at himself. Seahorses will often interact with their own reflections in the aquarium glass, so having a mirror-image seahorse that moves in response to his own actions can be very reassuring for a single seahorse and perk up the isolated individual dramatically. It’s an effective technique for a situation like yours and can fool the lonely seahorse into thinking he or she is still in the presence of other seahorses.

Best of luck with the treatments, Claire!
