Hot! This weekend is going to be 90 degrees and humid, but a wonderful holiday weekend indeed. Beats the cold rainy Memorial days of years past. Summer in MN is a beautiful thing

If you do the seahorses a couple of things to remember -

1. must feed a couple of times a day
2. must have lots of pod-infested LR for them to hunt on - keeps their belly full and mind busy.
3. better luck with captive bred seahorse, the wild caught won't eat frozen food, they want live food
4. Your seahorses will die if you only feed them brine - train them to eat mysid. Brine shrimp have nearly zero nutritional value, even when "enhanced", mysid are very good for them.
5. don't buy seahorses from LFS if they are feeding them live brine - that only means they won't eat the frozen mysid shrimp and will not make it in your tank.
6. Don't buy a seahorse unless you see it eat frozen mysid. Just to make sure I am clear on this point.
7. Don't put any coral in there that will sting them, The corals in that tank are as follows: toadstool, kenya tree, yellow scroll, blue shroom, zoos, xenia, red and green macro algae, blue finger leather, and one very small frag of something that looks like a candycane, which will probably be moved soon. I have not seen any stinging sweepers on it, yet, but I am keeping an eye on that one. Stay clear of torch, bubble, frogspawn, plate, elegance corals and anenome. Anything that stings will hurt them.


All this info learned the hard way - I did a seahorse tank 1992-1993 and just started all over again 4 months ago.

Mine is a 12 gallon hex that looks not unlike landos, but uses an Aquaclear 300 (set up as a fuge) for filtration, and a Corallife aqualight for lighting.....motile residents are a couple of shrimp and a bunch of small hermits.
