    Smile Thar be Seahorses...

    To complement my Manderin Goby in my reef tank I have aquired a pair of Seahorses (Tank bred) and are they fun to watch.

    I have a powerhead that is timed to activate for 15 min every hour. The critters will seperate (they spend alot of time together)

    and swim up and "surf" the current. It's funny to watch as they drift into the stream and get shot across the tank and swim back and do it again.

    They are eating well, mostly Mysis and Brine shrimp, they ocasionaly will eat some cyclops as well. It's amazing to see them vacume in a Mysis that looks to large for their mouth's. What's also neat is to see them swim to my Cleaner shrimp and get detailed.

    I do a 5G water change every 5 days or if my Nitrates go above 5. I have no mechanical filtration on the cube, just live rock scraps and macro Algae in one of the back bay's with a single LED light over the bay, my version of a refugium. I add Bio Calcium and Phyto Plankton every other day as well. The tank seems to be thriving.

    Awesome addition Surf! Good luck with them.
    When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.

    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    It seems to be their favorite spot. The Gorg does not seem to mind as the polyps pop out after they move. They do spend alot of time swimming as well when the lights are on. It's mostly at night that they attach themselves, one holding the Gorg, the other wraped on it's tank mate...

    Looks good Surfdog
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Beautiful! I am seriously thinking of converting one of my tanks to salt in the next couple of months. I would love to have seahorses.
