seahorses dying

sasha’s horse stable

My female erectus died.  I now have a male reidii and a male/female pair of erectus.  The male reidii is eating/swimming okay but has that patch above his pouch.  The remaining female erectus looks great and is swimming and eating normally.  The remaining male erectus is slightly off – ate one piece of food only today, hitching almost all the time and not swimming much, and now (like the deceased erectus female) not hitching with his friends as much – off on his own. 

I read through as many related threads as possible while waiting for your response.  I have re-dosed the General Cure, and also given a dose of kanaplex and triple septra – gave to the whole tank as some of the remaining horses are looking a bit off.  Please let me know any other suggestions and I have also sent you an email to take the seahorse course.  Thanks, Tanya
