I\’ve tried different backgrounds on my aquarium (colored poster board) and I have a couple different sponges in my tank, I added some red grape caulerpa, I have some tonga branch… I have an orange sea fan… There are two colt corals that the horses love to hitch to, they are creme colored. My mustangs are usually always dark gray and black with some light gray. The female will wear a rusty color quite a bit. The sunburst are a little more colorful, but in the whiter ranges. The male will sometimes turn almost all white and his back fin will have an almost green tint to it. But otherwise they are just gray and black. I see all the pictures of the beautiful yellow horses but cannot seem to get this kind of color. Any other suggestions? My tank is natural, so I don\’t want to go with any fake corals unless they look VERY lifelike…..January 9, 2007 at 1:14 am #3252ageberGuest
I have an all natural tank for seahorses as well with an orange background. I also have all different colored corals ranging from yellow, orange, red, green, etc. At first when I put them inmine were on the dark side of the spectrum, mostly dark brown and near black. Now my sunbursts range from a lt silver to pale orange to dk red. I have one who is orange to bright yellow. It has taken some time for them to lighten up. I keep adding brightly colored natural corals as well and feeding them the mysid shrimp with vibrance.
