I currently have them at 67 F.  Have had them between 67 to 68 since we have had them.  A friend of mine kept his at 55 F with no issues.  I don't recommend anything above 69 F.  They may do ok for short periods slightly warmer but long term I would not expect them to do well.

    When I had some abdominals I was told to keep them at66-68 no higher could be a bit lower but not higher.

    Like you say Dan they can be more playful then erectus or kudas.

They are very small, almost mysid size.  If allowed, they can grow very large.  No problem if fed out the first week or so.  Availability is highly variable though.  We have to check stock each time.

Thanks Dan!
James is going to order Mysis and the other small shrimp from you, think he may already be in contact.  Seahorses will be thrilled!
