Beautiful! I love seahorses.

Wow those are awesome! I had dwarf sea horses (hippocampus zosterae) at one point, but had to give them to an lfs because I was going on vacation for two weeks and nobody was experienced enough to keep them alive while I was gone. They are amazing creatures!

Aw that sucks. Did you think they were hard to keep?

Seahorses weren't eating and one was hiding for a time and very pale. In a last ditch effort to save them, we followed the instructions that the owner of the company gave and did a 12 minute freshwater dip then put them in a 10 gallon hospital tank. This would eliminate distractions that have been stressing them out. They still wouldn't eat until we turned off the air pump. Now they're finally eating and there's still hope they'll pull through.

I wish. I'm a freshwater guy. Just can't quite make the jump when there's so many freshwater fish.
