New Seahorses

I bought 3 new seahorses yesterday, still trying to determine for sure that species, but I think they are h. Reidi

They are huge compared to my others but have settled in nicely

The reason they dont do well with other fish is because their needs differ tremendously. They are very slow, methodical eaters. Will literally stare at a piece of mysis shrimp for 5 minutes before deeming it worthy to snick up. Any fish that eats at a normal rate would quickly get all the food before the horses could, and they would starve. The other thing is low current, no bubbles in the water ...not your average thing for a saltwater tank.

Seahorses do well in eclipse systems. You might want to consider that at some time in the future.

Freind of mine just got 15 tank raised Dwarf Seahorses, he has them in a big 55 gallon tank with nothing.

They're all beautiful, but I think the one in the first pic on the right side is the most stunning.

I'd love to get seahorses, but I'm just starting out on my first saltwater adventure, & I don't want to rush into anything.

So just consider me jealous :]

The one you mentioned I named "fortuna"....she takes opportunity where she
finds it. ... it is the tendency of seahorses to stare at their food for several minutes before eating it..not her, she will go where the boys are looking at food, look at them as if to say "are you gonna eat that" and if they dont..she does. It is really funny to watch and she is the best eater of them all.
