Sorry to hear. Things will work out in your favor soon. It does give you some time to see if that seahorse makes it. I lost my gsp to ich a long time ago. This particular fish actually got me into SW. RIP Nugget!

So my LFS said the seahorses were orangish yellow indicating they weren't very healthy (supposed to be a bright orangish red). I have to run the tank 8 weeks without fish anyway. This sets things back...
Why 8 weeks?

Aw, RIP Nugget. I never got the seahorses yet. I'm trying to catch the blenny (last fish in there), but he's a clever little guy. After that, I'll have to run the tank 7 weeks without fish to make sure the ich goes through their life cycle and the population dies without their host.

Tail spot blenny. Such a character and pretty in it's own way. Oh man those are the best seahorses ever! I've seen them in person at Birch Aquarium. I watched a video about the ones at the Hawaii public aquarium (forgot the name) and they cost $10,000 each and only last one year!!! The people at the Hawaiian public aquarium dug a $20,000 hole just so the tide could bring in a special tiny red shrimp to live in the "pond". That's what they feed their sea dragons and they have been living 4 or 5 years. Sorry about the blabbering, but man..so interesting!

Haven't updated in a while so here's how things are going. The tank is running very smoothly and everything is thriving. Haven't been able to catch that blenny though! Still going to order seahorses, but not in a rush.








Elegance coral has recovered. Almost died a few months ago.



Gorgonians are doing well.
