    Dear nightdragon:

    A 75 gallon aquarium would make an excellent seahorse tank. It has the superior height seahorses need in order to mate comfortably and provide them with protection from depth-related problems such as gas bubble syndrome, plus it has enough water volume to provide exceptional stability and a very comfortable margin for error. The seahorses should be very happy in an aquarium with lots of room to roll like your 75-gallon system.

    Seahorse.com offers a brief training course for new Ocean Rider customers and first-time buyers free of charge to help get them up to speed on the aquarium care and requirements of seahorses. It is a sort of crash course on seahorse keeping that is available to anyone who is interested, including hobbyists who are setting up their first seahorse tank. All newbies are required to complete this basic training before they can be certified and authorized to purchase Ocean Rider seahorses, and all aquarists and hobbyists are welcome to participate regardless of their experience level.

    The purpose of this training is twofold: (1) to assure that the hobbyist has a suitable aquarium, completely cycled and with the biofiltration fully established, ready and waiting when his seahorses arrive, and (2) to assure that the hobbyist has a good understanding of the aquarium care and requirements of Ocean Rider seahorses by the time he or she has completed the training and been certified.

    During the course of this training we will be corresponding via e-mail and discussing topics such as the following:

    Aquarium care and requirements of seahorses;
    Selecting a suitable aquarium for seahorses;
    *size (tank height and water volume)
    *filtration
    *aquarium test kits
    Optimizing your aquarium for seahorses;
    *lighting
    *water movement and circulation
    *hitching posts (real and artificial)
    *aquascaping
    *substrate
    Cycling a new marine aquarium;
    The cleanup crew (aquarium janitors & sanitation engineers);
    Water Chemistry
    *optimal parameters
    *water quality & water changes
    *aquarium maintenance schedule
    Feeding seahorses;
    Compatible tank mates for seahorses;
    Courtship and breeding;
    Rearing the young;
    Disease prevention and control;
    Acclimating Ocean Rider seahorses.

    I will be providing you with detailed information on these subjects and answering any questions you may have about the material I present. And, from time to time, I will also be recommending seahorse-related articles for you to read and absorb online.

    Just contact me off list ([email protected]) using your full name and I will get you started on the training right away. We can get your 75-gallon aquarium up and running, optimized to create ideal conditions for your seahorses and compatible clownfish as soon as you can absorb all of the material and put it into practice.

    Best wishes with all your fishes, nightdragon!

    Happy Trails!
