    hello all, what a scary day, let me explain. my wife took the day off so somebody would be here when the new family members showed up. she waited all day for our special delivery and by 4pm est no delivery had come, so she got on the phone and talked with fedex and found out that they had messed up the address and were going to be delivered the following day. we couldn\’t believe it, so she hopped in the car and flew over to the fedex facility in a urgent attempt to save the lives of our new seahorses. she got the horses and flew back home knowing the little guys had an extra long trip. upon opening the box, it looked like we may have been to late, both horses were laying on there sides and not moving showing any signs of life. we stayed optimistic and started the transfer to the main tank. after about 10minutes of floating there bag in the tank what do you know the little guys started moving about. so we continued forward with there accclimation to the new tank. i have to say the horses seem to have pulled through, already 1 is jetting all around the tank and the other one explored a little bit than hitched up to a post and is just hanging around.

    thanks oceanrider,

    Hi Craig,

    Congratulations on your new horses!! Sorry that you had a scare.

    Sounds like they were suffering from a little shipping stress. Thankfully these captive bred critters are incredibly hearty. Most horses recover from the stress of shipping and go on to do very well.

    Glad to hear they are doing well.

    well here is an update, after a 2 day trip to the east coast and a good nights rest, the horses are doing well. the female is an agressive feeder already. as soon as she saw the shrimp in the water she was on the hunt and slaying shrimp left and right wow. the male is definitely more timid, but is feeding just not with the same vigor of the female. both are exploring there new home and hitching here and there as they explorer there new home.

    thanks again oceanrider

    wow what can i say, my new horses are loving there new home. my male is eating like a little pig, his favorite place to hitch is next to the feeding station.he sits and waits for his dinner to be served. my female likes to chase her food, but so far i am having luck with target feeding her and getting her to the feeding station. i figure in the next couple of weeks, it shouldn’t be a problem to get her to meet me at the feeding station. as long as i target feeder her she eats like crazy. i can’t believe how much they eat my male eats between 6-10 shrimp at a feeding and the female eats 6-8 shrimp, they eat a little less first thing in the morning but come dinner time wow.
    the pair have already tried to mate once since getting here, unfortunately the female was not able to get here eggs into the males pouch and lost them. thats ok i am not sure that i am ready for fry as of yet. it still amazes me how quickly they have accilmated to there new enviroment. i couldn’t be happier with our horses.

    Dear Craig:

    Glad to hear your new arrivals are doing so well! A hearty appetite and a healthy interest in breeding are very good signs that indicate your seahorses are already comfortable in their new surroundings and find conditions very much to their liking. Keep up the good work!

    Best of luck with your new seahorses, sir!

    Happy Trails!
    Pete Giwojna
