I am hoping there is someone on this site that can help... I am an experienced seahorse keeper and seem to be one of the lucky ones who has bred and kept seahorses in the past with no probs. However I recently purchased 2 giant brazilian reidi seahorses, yellow in colour. Day 1 both fine. Day 2, the male goes from a yellow colour to a pale yellow - what is wrong with him? Anything I can do to boost his colouring? Other than that he is peachy. Second problem (and probably more urgent, time is of the essence here for treatment) - the female, slightly younger has lost her appetite, yet still is interested in food. Has lost weight and is now rapidly breathing. I understand this is an indication of somthing being wrong and I don't want to lose her. The internet is pants for finding answers to her/his symptoms. Can anyone tell me what is wrong and what I need to do? Symptoms have now lasted 3 days and she is getting weaker. Please email me with replies to :- firstname.lastname@example.org
Just to add, water temp, salt, PH,water nitrates, nitrites & ammonia OK.
Thank you so much x
