Spitting up

« posted: 1 year ago »
My rescue girls, sigh, I remind myself I knew they had issues....  so one of the sisters will completely spit out mysis after a full minute or even two minutes or longer, or she will spit out pieces.  And lost some weight , ideas?  Her snick appears fine, and strong.  It is a pretty long time before she spits it back up.

It sounds like weak snick to me as a normal snick takes the food all the way down to the small stomach area. I don't believe that seahorses can vomit up stuff after it reaches the tiny stomach so it must be only going down part way. I don't know what causes this but maybe DanU or Tami can tell you what to do to treat your girl.


Good luck Laurasea

It takes so long for her to spit it back out.  Once I saw this happen started to watch and wait,  and it takes several minutes for her to spit it back out, even up to five!  Crazy!  I did a freshwater water dip on her last night, for four minutes.  Today she ate more and kept it down.  Must be parasites....
