Hi Pete,

Thank you again for taking the time to help me out here, I really do appreciate it.

I have an update.

Upon further inspection of both seahorses in an upright hitched positions, it appears both the anal fins are in the same location for each seahorse and both are pointing downward.  Which is probably not a good sign of having a male……bummer.

I was also wondering, at what age are the Sunburst seahorses normally shipped from Ocean Rider?

I purchased this “mated pair” as part of the Sunburst special on June 8th 2013, so they have had 6-7 months to mature with me in addition to the time they spent at Ocean Rider.

I am attempting to take a better picture (but you get the idea), I wish I had a nicer camera.

I still appreciate the service Ocean Rider is providing to the population interested in Seahorses.  Healthy and happy seahorses grown in excellence.
