Very nice pic Flamingonhot. Even though I dont usually use mechanical Filtration I am on my seahorse tank. I am a firm believer that LR and a skimmer does best but I did not want to use a skimmer for the micro bubbles issue. I did add a PH to my tank over the weekend. It is a 170 GPH PH. Should provide plenty of current for them without blowing them away. I`m trying to build a cage for my heater from this craft material that I got from walmart. Kind of Like that plastic stuff Sadie showed earlier. Hopefully we will be able to start up soon. Been out of work since Sept. 3rd because of ruptured Achilles tendon with still a month or so more to go so funds are a little tight right now. But we are moving slowly but surely.

Will you try to raise seahorse fry?

If so, I have heard that some types have babies that are much easier to rear than others (can be done within the main tank).

I have been considering a seahorse tank for some time (with the thought of breeding them as a great science project for the kids and fun for me); however, feeding the young is a big concern.

Best of luck & I will be keeping an eye on your posts

I`m hoping to get my seahorses today. I sill have to build the gard over the heater. I got a PH that does 170 GPH so I think this will be enough without blasting at the SH. I`ll post some pics if they come in.

I'll be waiting! How will you acclimate? I'm just curious if they need longer acclimation periods or not.....

Just another final pic of the tank before the seahorses come. I also bought a CC starfish for the tank as part of the cleanup crew. I also made up the gard for the heater. Hopefully next week the SH`s will be here.

Well the LFS said that they should be down at the airport right now so it looks like today may be the day. Hopefully tomorrow I can post some pics. I put the PH inside the basket that will accomplish closing up the opening of the basket and making the intake of the PH inacessable to the SH`s.
