OK after 3 hr acclimation. Here they are. I`m hoping to get better pics later but these will do for now. I`m going to attemt to feed a few mysis since they have not eat anything in two days. They dont have stomachs and need to eat a couple times a day. I`ll post again tomorrow

Haha... it might be torture, but which of us doesn't love that anticipation of something new and supercool coming for our tanks. LOL
Whenever I'm waiting for a package I'm like a 4yr old two days before Christmas... calling the wife all day long, "Did anything come yet?!? Are you sure? Maybe it came while you were in the bathroom. Did you look outside?"

Awwwww... they're so cute.
Give them a buffet. They deserve it after such a long ordeal.
I'll be watching this thread closely as my next purchase is a 20-30 high seahorse tank.

I'm counting on you to show me how it's done.

No problem. I worried the whole way but It`s not over yet. Now I have to learn to take care of them.

LOL! I usually know before she comes home. I track them, so I know where they are!

Here are some more pics of the SH`s. How much flow should be in the tank. They seem to be kind of pushed around by the flow but I only have a small PH in the tank. Others have told me that they like flow. Well here they are
