Blah, blah, blah...dead end. If you are into seahorses you will probably know what is "untrue" more than the lfs. They keep them together all the time because they only plan on selling them not keeping them long term and they have limited space.

I do not regret buying her because she is such a cool little seahorse. I just regret  where I bought her from. Any future seahorses will come from Seahorse Source!

You have learned an important lesson about impulse buying. Every aquarist has done it at some time or other including many times by me. For seahorses a reliable source is all important. Most LFS do not have healthy livestock at all. After being shipped 2-3 times and then dumped into a overcrowded tank and perhaps bought the same day and brought home it is an overwhelming assault on an animals immune system.

I am happy your little girl is doing well.
