My wild caught pony is eating the PE frozen mysids! Fianally. The trick it seems is to leave the mysids in for several hours in the net that I use as a feeding station. I see them coming through in her feces as opposed to the red shrimp. Totally different color. Boy oh boy am I one happy camper
Just had to share with ya\’ll. Pete thanks for all of your good advice.

You’re very welcome, sir! It’s great to hear that your wild-caught seahorse is now accepting the frozen Mysis, too! I’m glad your patience and persistence has finally paid off.
Not only is that going to make feeding her easier — and less expensive — it is also going to improve your WC’s chances for long-term health by assuring that he gets a daily dose of beta-glucan to boost his immune system and help them fight off disease along with his Vibrance-enriched frozen Mysis.
Both Vibrance formulations now include beta-glucan as a primary ingredient. Beta-glucan is a potent immunostimulant that provides important health benefits for fishes. Thanks to Vibrance, we can now boost our seahorse’s immune systems and help them fight disease as part of their daily feeding regimen. Enriching our galloping gourmets’ frozen Mysis with Vibrance will give them a daily dose of Beta Glucan to stimulate phagocytosis of certain white cells (macrophages). If the research on Beta Glucan is accurate, this could be a great way to help prevent infections from bacteria, fungus, and viral elements rather than attempting to treat disease outbreaks after the fact.
Not only should Vibrance + Beta Glucan help keep healthy seahorses healthy, it should also help ailing seahorses recover faster. Research indicates that it helps prevent infections and helps wounds heal morfe quickly (Bartelme, 2001). It is safe to use in conjunction with other treatments and has been proven to increase the effectiveness of antibiotics (Bartelme, 2001). It will be great for new arrivals recovering from the rigors of shipping because Beta Glucan is known to alleviate the effects of stress and to help fish recover from exposure to toxins in the water (Bartelme, 2001) . Good stuff!
Best of luck with your seahorses, Lawrence! Keep up the good work!
