Seahorse tank

Got a new seahorse, she is actually from the same batch that my birthday seahorse came from and was the last one. She had been at the store with two others for over two months, recently the two others sold. I felt bad for her being all alone, specially since seahorses are so social so i brought her home . The owner sold her to me for 50% off since she had been there for so long. She was $40. It was very cute when she saw her sister, stared for a long time then immediately followed her around.

She is having some difficulties with my current but that was expected since she came from a tank with practically zero current. I have been turning the current off to feed until she gets more used to the tank and she is eating very well, better than my birthday seahorse.


28 gallon nano

Got a few frags for $10 each.

One is a fox coral.

The other is a red acan coral.

Both


260 gallon tank

A red monti coral is the latest addition here. Not looking too overly red yet but we think it will bounce back nicely (our green monti is doing great). $65 i believe it was





Oh and we got the sebae anemone as well but that can be seen in my other post about its recovery (hopefully).

haha thanks Carey! I'm lucky to have such a good LFS, even if I only have just the one.

I'll get some pictures today of the dragonets, as soon as all the lights come on! I'll try to get a nicer one of the one in our large tank too, she comes out a lot more lately.

How big a tank do you need for an Achilles to live without being stressed out, always wanted one. But I'm always told they don't handle well

That fox coral is sweet. Looks like a fluffy shroom.

Thanks everyone I'll try to get some full tank shots uploaded soon (I'm uploading a video so my computer is being very slow)

I don't know the exact size of tank needed but I know it must be large, liveaquaria says 180. They are a very panicky fish, ours gets startled very easily, he's slowly getting used to people but sudden movements make him hide still. Ours currently has ich as well but is eating everything still (algae sheets, flake, and all types of frozen) so we are hoping his immune system will kick in soon (we are soaking the food in vitamins and garlic to help out). I'm afraid treating him will do more harm than good plus we would have to catch all the fish, not an easy task.



Here are the dragonet photos though

Scooter blenny in 40 gallon hex: I tried to get one of his fin but got impatient, you'll have to see the video of the tank for that haha.





Mandarin in 260: Apparently she is very camera shy, out and about when I have no camera but as soon as I bring it out she disappears


Mandarin in 28 gal: I'm debating removing the wrasse, I think he is out-competing her for food. She doesn't have the sunken belly yet but she definitely isn't as fat as my last one.
