One of our newer pairs have laid their 2nd batch of eggs. The Male is the PB Smokey and the female is the Zebra. This pair produces 50% Zebra's and 50% Smokey Leopards. Good parent raising pair. As they get older and breed more, their batch of eggs will get bigger each time.

Seahorse Fry Day 6

Posted by Gary Hull on

The Seahorse (Hippocampus Erectus) fry have reached day 6. Out of the original 10 fry, 7 are still alive and doing well. I have posted a pic of a couple swimming around the tank together. These guys need daily water changes and newly hatched brine shrimp several times a day. They are usually a darker color until they get older.

Seahorse Babies!

Posted by Gary Hull on

Just wanted to post a quick comment regarding our large Seahorse. After several failed attempts at mating, we finally have some Seahorse fry swimming around the tank. The picture I have posted for this blog post shows the first attempt at mating and the spilled eggs on the bottom of the tank.The eggs look orange due to the oil that they contain. At this point, there are only 7 or 8 fry but at least they managed to have some this time. I will update the blog post with some pictures in the next day or so. Happy Fishkeeping!

Seahorses Are Back!

Posted by Gary Hull on

We had success in the past with our Dwarf Seahorses and have recently purchased several pairs of a larger species (Hippocampus Erectus) to breed in our saltwater tanks. We purchased these breeders from a facility that specializes in captive bred seahorses.  With our Dwarf Seahorses, the daily feeding consists of live newly hatched brine shrimp which realistically is not that hard to hatch on a daily basis. The great thing about the larger species is that they can easily be trained to take frozen mysis shrimp which can be purchased at most aquarium stores or online. The feeding literally takes...
