    Smile Thar be Seahorses...

    0 Not allowed!
    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.
    Will keep you posted

    Awesome addition Surf! Good luck with them.
    When I go fishing I just throw sharp rocks in the water and wait for the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    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.

    Dear naps, sorry I hated you so much when I was a child... Love me

    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...

    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.
