Just emailing to say thank you for working with me to bring me two beautiful H. erectus seahorses. I am thoroughly pleased and they are doing very well so far. When they first arrived, one was slightly tipsy, but I believe this may be due to the fact that they had not seen light for two days. They are now both doing fine in the tank set up. The lighter female seahorse is especially doing well; she has shown no signs of sickness or over-stress at all. I am feeding them piscine frozen mysis. I will be sure to keep in touch and let you know of any changes. Thank you much!
Arrived Safely and Acclimated Quickly
Just wanted to let you know that Trigger, Sunny, Milo and Venus arrived safely 2 weeks ago and acclimated quickly. The ladies really scarf up the food at their abalone shell feeding station. Milo has been the “shy feeder”, but after reviewing the forum (again and again) I didn’t get too nervous or panic, he wasn’t concave so may have been eating ‘pods when I wasn’t looking. I started target feeding him since he wasn’t going to the feeding station and he’s getting much bolder now. Trigger is all a stallion should be: boy or girl, he wraps tails and dances! After 9 months of planning for them, they have really exceeded my expectations! Mahalo! Pete’s down to earth guides and advice are priceless! He is the reason I learned that I could confidently do this, especially with your exceptional seahorses. I cringe when I see seahorses on the ‘net for $19.99. I believe you get what you pay for… and I have no regrets for the cost. I love all my fish in my other reef tank. But seahorses evoke a much higher emotion…more like my dogs, cats and birds. Some day in the future in a bigger house, I’ll have a bigger seahorse tank and you can expect to hear from me again.

The Most Beautiful Seahorses I’ve Seen
Hey guys! I know I emailed earlier with all the details of my new seahorse’s arrival, but I just wanted to let you know that these are the most beautiful seahorses I’ve seen. Just last week I was at my LFS and they had 3 seahorses for sale. I sat looking at them for some time just observing. They looked very healthy to me, but I had already determined I was buying mine from Ocean Rider and had no intention of changing my mind, even though the owner tried to convince me that I should. The seahorses you sent me are like nothing I’ve ever seen in a LFS. I now know what a beautiful, healthy seahorse really looks like. The ones in the pet store don’t even compare to the size and beauty of the seahorses I recieved today from Ocean Rider. Thanks so Much for Everything!
