I'm not sure the product name but its made by seachem (i think, sorry I'm at work slacking off). It's an alk buffer that will keep Ph at 8.2-8.3
When I go home I'll try to remember to take a pic.

Sorry for the delay, I forgot to check last night. I did look this morning though. It's called marine buffer by seachem. Works well imop

Yes, Seahorse can survive in a hyposalinty tank for parasite treatment. It works quite well for the same reason you would treat a sick fish. The most important thing for them when you do this is not to go below 0.010 and ph needs to match the DT tank before you transfere.

I`m pretty sure it`s not barasites. Seahorses are very prone to bacterial infections. You`ll see whiteish slime on them. I have hear that melafix or pimafix are Ok to treat depending if it`s bacterial or fungal.
