Dear Bruce:

You’re very welcome, sir!

it is very refreshing to meet a Veterinarian who is willing to work with seahorses. Most Vets want nothing to do with tropical fish, in general, let alone exotic oddities such as Hippocampus. Please do keep us informed regarding the efficacy of your treatments for the herd of seahorses you are treating for a myxozoan infection.

I would also encourage you to apply for membership in the Syngnathidae discussion group (, if you don’t already belong, sir, as described below:

Stakeholders (e.g. public aquarium representatives, conservation biologists, veterinarians) met at a recent international aquarium workshop to address the husbandry, management and conservation of seahorses. The need for better communication was a key output from the workshop so this list-server was organised to help facilitate future discussions and to broaden the network.

I am a member of the Syngnathidae group, and it is an excellent way to keep abreast of the latest treatments for seahorses, seadragons, and pipefish.

Best of luck with all of your projects, Bruce!
