    Dear Wanda:

    Thank you for all the kind words!

    We do indeed have the knowledge to empower you to keep seahorses successfully in a home aquarium, Wanda, and I would be very happy to teach you everything you need to know in that regard. However, the Ocean Rider seahorse training program is a correspondence course that is conducted entirely via e-mail, so before we can begin the lessons, we must first establish e-mail communication. If you will send me a brief e-mail message off list that includes your full name (first and last), which I need for my records, I will reply by sending you the first installment in the training program, and we can proceed from there. I can be reached at the following e-mail address anytime:

    [email protected]

    This basic training is very informal and completely free of charge, yet quite comprehensive, Wanda. Ocean Rider provides the free training as a service to their customers and any other hobbyists who are interested in learning more about the care and keeping of seahorses. It’s a crash course on seahorse keeping consisting of 10 separate lessons, and is conducted entirely via e-mail. There is no homework and there are no examinations or classes to attend or anything of that nature — just a lot of good, solid information on seahorses for you to read through and absorb as best you can, at your own speed, working from your computer in the comfort of your own home. The training course consists of a total of over 210 pages of text with more than 230 full color illustrations, broken down into a dozen information packets devoted to specific topics:

    Best wishes with all your fishes, Wanda! As soon as I get your e-mail message, we can begin the lessons.

    Respectfully,
    Pete Giwojna, Ocean Rider Training Program Advisor

    I visited Hawaiian Aqua-Farms and am so blown away by these beautiful creatures. I have have freshwater aquariums for years. I have always wanted to establish a marine tank but what would be better than seahorses. I would like to start the online course as soon as possible. Since I am a list person, I will need an outline of how to set up my tank. Thanks, Joan Carr

    Aloha Pete, My students and I just signed up for your course. We have a wonderful marine lab here in Ohio but no horses (yet)

    We can’t hardly wait to get started:

    BTW one of my students will be Traveling to the big Island on Monday for a college visit. She has been accepted into the Marine Biology program at U of H. Needless to say, I am thrilled for her.

    I can’t say enough about how wonderful I think it is that you take your time to do this, much less for free!!

    well done sir

    Dear Dave:

    Very impressive, sir! You have developed the marine lab at Bellevue into an outstanding facility for your students, and adding seahorses and pipefish to your captive breeding program should be very successful and very popular with your budding marine biologists!

    I have contacted you off list in response to your e-mail, Dave, and you have been enrolled in the Ocean Rider seahorse training program. Please let me know whether you and your pupils would prefer to receive individual lessons or if you would rather have all 10 lessons sent you in one file, and we’ll proceed accordingly.

    Best of luck with all of your projects, sir!

    Respectfully,
    Pete Giwojna, Ocean Rider Tech Support

    Pete, Thanks for the very kind words ! I have asked the students who are
    interested in learning about the horses and setting up an aquarium (starting later this summer) to enroll on their own. But we will work as a group through the lessons in our lab before school. Look for their e-mails before the end of next month.

    thanks again
    David

    Okay, Dave – that’s perfect! Go ahead and send any of your students and budding marine aquarists who are interested in seahorse husbandry (or just keeping a pair of ponies as pets) my way and I will see that they get started off on the right foot with the best possible information and the best livestock for first-time seahorse keepers!

    Best of luck with the marine lab at Bellevue, sir!

    My name is Tammy Tucker and I am very interested in seahorses and want to learn more about them so that I can bring them into my home. I don’t have a tank or anything picked out yet and am looking forward to learning and then having my own.
    Thank you,

    Dear Tammy, Debbie, Crystal & Rex:

    Thank you very much for providing me with your e-mail address, or contacting me personally off list via e-mail ([email protected]) as well as posting on the forum regarding the seahorse training program. As you know, the training program is a correspondence course that is conducted entirely via e-mail, so we cannot begin the lessons until we have first established e-mail communication.

    All of you have received my replies by now, and should have received the lessons for you to read through and study at your leisure. Be sure to get back to me with any questions or concerns you may have as you go over the material in the training program, and we will discuss everything until it is perfectly clear. Once you feel you have mastered all the material in the lessons, and feel your new tank is ready to receive the seahorses, let me know and I will put your certification through so that you can place your orders any time thereafter.

    Best wishes with all your fishes, guys!

    Respectfully,
    Pete Giwojna, Ocean Rider Training Program Advisor
