Hello I was wondering which special would be better for purchasing.
I really liked the 2 pair sunburst special but I saw that the description didn’t describe the pairs as mated and didn’t say the size. While on the deluxe mustang and sunburst special it says they are mated and medium. I was wondering if both specials include medium mated pairs or is it only the deluxe special that includes medium mates pairs. Thank you

Ocean Rider sells three different sizes of their most popular seahorses, such as Mustangs and Sunbursts – medium, large, and extra-large.
All of the large and extra-large seahorses cost more, and will therefore be clearly designated as either Large or Extra-Large in the description. So if you are looking at a special offer that does not clearly specify the size of the ponies, then it’s safe to assume that they are mediums. (In this case, you can be sure of it, since the Large and Extra-Large Sunbursts are currently out of stock.)
I believe this is the Special Package you are considering, Dan:
2 Yellow Sunburst pairs, 20 Red Shrimp, Vibrance 2, Free Shipping
2 Pairs of Sunbursts, Free Red Shrimp, Vibrance, and Free Fed Ex Shipping!
The best seahorse for everyone! From beginners to experts! The famous Ocean Rider Sunburst® is our most popular seller!
The best seahorse for everyone!! From beginners to experts!!
The famous Ocean Rider Sunburst is our most popular seller! Like the wild mustangs of the American West, these horses are one of a kind! We have been breeding these domesticated beauties here on our farm since 1998!. They are tropical, colorful, bold, gregarious, social, hearty and healthy! They all feed EZY on frozen mysis enhanced with Vibrance® right from your hand!!
The natural geographical home range of this species includes the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean and the East Coast of the US although many taxonomists believe these are actually 2 or more species. This seahorse can display all colors of the rainbow! This seahorse is a broad chested robust seahorse that can reach lengths of up to 8 inches.
They are full of deep lines, diamond patterns, dots and original colors from rusty red to rusty black, green, beige, purple, orange and even white!. Spikes are common. Very stunning! Unlike anything you have ever had or ever will. They are so domesticated they will eat right from you hand! And the colors are awesome!!
Colors will vary with mood and environment. Set your tank up to get the colors you want! Hitch them to the color you want them to become!
Ocean Rider has been breeding the seahorses for you since 1998! We first offered Certificates of Authenticity and High Health for our seahorses in 1998.
Medium Ocean Rider Seahorses can be between 3-6 inches long.

Notice that near the end of the extended description for this special offer, it states that “Medium Ocean Rider Seahorses can be between 3-6 inches long.”
The descriptor “pair” always refers to a compatible male and female seahorse that have shown clear indications of courtship and bonding, hence mated pairs, sir. Ocean Rider always prefers to sell their seahorses as male/female pairs so that they do not end up with a preponderance of either males or females, which is, of course, undesirable for breeding purposes…
Best wishes with all your fishes, Dan!
