Hello, I am very new, so new I have no clue how to set up a tank yet, but I am taking the courses and hopefully in about 6 months I will own one of these magical tanks. I’m in a dilemma as I mentioned to the Ocean Rider crew about being able to have a one sex tank, if I read right, they make a lot of babies, and I mean a lot. So I’m wondering how the ones that have mated tanks with multiple horses in them, what do you do with the babies????? I mean if they only had a few that’s one thing, but hundreds, well, that’s a whole seahorse store and I am in no way wanting a seahorse store lol.
So if anyone would like to share with me how they do it I would be grateful. I would love, love, love to have babies, but am so glad to hear that Ocean Rider has ponies as they say that are capable of being with the same sex, as I want to have at least 10 in a tank. Also, any advice anyone would like to share with me, I am more than open to suggestions. Thank you, Georgia KellyMarch 23, 2022 at 11:32 am #73832stebuc2016Participant
Hi, My wife and I have a display tank (53 gal Red Sea) we wanted to raise some babies also. Two of our males had babies so far. We were lucky and one male had 25 and the other had approximately 60 about two weeks later. We set up two 5 gallon aquariums for the infants and a 36 gallon for the juviniles (eating mysis). Ocean rider has many care sheets and we started frozen Mysis juice with live baby brine at 3 weeks. At 4 weeks we feed chopped mysis first and then a shot of live baby brine after about 15 minutes. At 6 weeks we moved the juviniles to our 36 gallon because they could eat whole and chopped frozen Mysis (Hikari). If you have too many babies, check out local pet stores might be interested in raising them, try your friends or church freinds also. Good Luck, Steve and Margaret.
