Trouble with new seahorse! I brought the two Kuda horses home tonight and did a drip acclimation since there shouldn’t have been any built up toxins from the quick trip between tanks. They seemed fine for the first hour or two, although the female did hang upside down for a few minutes from the hitching post. But then about three hours after being released into the new tank I noticed the female having twitching fits, where she would twitch for about one minute and turn a lighter color, almost as though she was glowing… very disturbing. So I did a concentrated dip in the Meth Blue I had on hand, and now she is back in the tank. She is still having the odd twitch, but maybe a bit better. I’m not sure if I’ve done the right thing!!
I know she came from a tank with elevated ammonia/nitrite/nitrate, so is this the effects of the environment or the move?
