MY first seahorse! Finally!

Well, I finally got my first seahorse! It's Hippocampus Reidi. Male, and black and white.


It suprisingly ate mysis shrimp within 30 minutes of being in the tank.

Will post more info in a bit:

Well, it's doing awesome so far. Eating mysis like crazy about 1-4 times a day. I feed just about a whole cube of mysis per day!

Going great, very active, no signs of slowing down!

EDIT_UPDATE: IT just had babies! lmao i'll post some updates in a little bit. I don't really see many people looking at this topic but i'll keep it up!

AWESOME!!! CONGRATS!! You got a bonus package eh? Sweet. So I guess he'd already done the mambo with a female at the petstore and then took all the fertilized eggs and putem in his pouch. That is sooooo cool!!! I can't wait to see em. You're definitely gonna put piccies right??? I love seahorses, What kind of setup do you have to have for'em? Saltwater I know but what else?? Gonna have to get me some!!! Good luck with all the new arrivals!!

lol thanks. I was actually caught off guard by the babies. It's just sitting there one day and it starts twitching, I was like oh dear...

Next thing you know shabang! I only have about two that are doing good, I would of had rotifers and all that but they are hard to get and didn't know I would of needed them! I really don't expect them to live, not prepared and all I have to feed them is daphnia and baby brine shrimp that are hatching as we speak lol.

Well, this is the only pic I have so far:

Lol thanks for your compliments! I really appreciate them. I'll be starting a new thread about my 30 gallon. I finally got it moved from the 10 gallon to the 30 gallon and it's starting to come out real nicely .
