How cute are they? How long have you had them. I hear they are very hard to keep alive.

Thanks:)
there won't be any problems with them. the key is who you buy them from.
never buy from your LFS. buy from a reputable source that farm breeds/raises them in captivity and they have already trained them to eat enhanced Mysis. the biggest issue is getting them to eat. these guy's recognize Mysis enhanced with vibrance as their food so you only feed them live food on rare occasions for your entertainment.if someone wants Sea Horses and Pipe Fish together make sure you get them from the same place so they can't be exposed to disease. this is something I have researched for a very long time and I even went to a bit of an extreme to wait nearly 8 months after the tank was up and running to finally retest all my params and place my order and before that researched everything that can go in the tank as mates. warning for anyone thinking of having them they are expensive, you will need a chiller and need to be dedicated to feeding them twice a day and fast them on the 6th day and make sure each pony gets 2-5 Mysis per meal it takes about 5 minutes or me to feed these guy's. then there's the mess they make in the tank you need lots of CUC "no hermits"and still be prepared to do weekly water changes. anyhow enough ramblng. I am in total love with them and I will do what ever necessary to insure they thrive not just survive, I have a good friend who purchased his from Ocean Rider he had them over 7 years then sold them when he got out of the hobby. another good place to buy is Sea Horse Source. oh I am planning a Kreisel tank as we speak for the fry they breed every 21 days and I don't want all of them to be fish food. yes.. more Magical Pony pics:) 393849

I will do 3 times a day with newly hatched artemia. then switch them over when their old enough to eat fortified brine or mysis.

Here they are swimming intertwinded and starting to display their dance, they did this quite awhile today, in the 2nd picture the female is the one in front. unfortunatley if they keep up this behavior I'm sure I will be seeing fry sooner than later. I will get out the video camera and make sure it's ready I want to capture the male giving Birth. I worried about making sure they got enough to eat before I got them now I know just how easy it is to feed them as a matter of fact I have to becareful not to over feed, their pig's! they relate really well with their tank mates, they are 3 firefish, one watchman Goby, one Bi color Blenny,one blue spot Jawfish and two pipefish that I got from Ocean Rider as well. I'm Fascinated my only regret is that I didn't do it sooner.
enjoy the pictures they are Beautiful:) the orange are the Sunbursts the grey's are the Mustangs they are both sexually mature pairs but will still grow larger.

Thanks Meredith:) I can't seem to stop watching them, I've had many reef tanks over the years with many different fish species and corals imaginable but these Seahorses take the cake it's amazing how they are so alert to everything inside and outside the tank. they don't seem to have any fear like some fish I have gotten they would hide sometimes for a week, not these guys I put my hand in and they wrap around my fingers lol if I were small enough I would go for a swim with them.... we need a giant GRIN ICON here!!! cause I'm grinning from ear to ear:)

I'll chime in here yes.. more Magical Pony pics:) 690297

That last picture, the 'face to face' one, I don't know
what kind of camera you used on that but that's some
'professional quality' as they say... perfect...

My local saltwater place has a 'horse tank' that reminds me
of like a 'treasure chest'. It has like a golden glow to it like
you'd expect to see a leprechaun go swimming across at
any moment... Anyways, looks like you got your levels right :) -JT

ps.. its funny I was so caught up looking at the rings around
his pupils, I didnt notice his little 'frown' like you're not gonna
share the 'chips a hoy's.... good stuff...... -peace....
