Hello all....name is Will....AND WE LOVE SEAHORSES HERE.....been involved with mostly seahorses all my life.....watched my dad gathering water from the Long Island Sound....bringing it home....filter it and let enough water evaporate to be usable in his tank......I was not so industrious and have only been doing saltwater for about 10-11 years.....mostly seahorses....h. erectus and h. reidi......I'm only half arse good at raising the fry.....I'm in the 25%-35% survival rate range.....my best brood yielded 64.....I have to thank Dan Underwood's videos and writings for my greatest leap in numbers....and the many threads I have read that I have been able to apply to my setup
I am just getting ready to start a cold water tank and adopt a group of 3 Big Bellies......any suggestions on cold water tanks would be helpful

Thanks:beer:

O my, what cute seahorses. They are such pretty colors and look very healthy. I raised a brood last winter and there is a lot of hard work involved. My hat is off to you for raising so many. I may try raising some again this winter but we are travelling more now and finding a sitter for seahorse fry and juveniles is a whole different ballgame so I don't know. Anyway congrats on your success at getting them to 3 months!
