H. Erectus For Sale - US

« posted: 4 years ago »
No Longer Available - Sorry folks, will post when I have more for sale, but I'm not currently breeding any so it will be a while.

I have some H. erectus juveniles coming of age for sale. $50ea, $40ea for 4 or more. They are between 3.5 - 4" and I'm only shipping those that are sexually mature, so I can do pairs, or singles of a specific sex. All are eating frozen food, though I still offer enriched live brine shrimp a few times a week. I think couple of the ^*($#@#% are pregnant, so it's definitely time to find them new homes.

Shipping is actual shipping cost. Fedex raised their prices this year, so even with a 27% discount, many shipping quotes have been coming out to close to one hundred dollars. So in areas where it's possible, I have been shipping using USPS. That usually ranges between $40-$60. However, their express service isn't overnight to all locations. If you are local, you can pick them up too.

Now, on to the pictures.

I'm super tempted as well. Unfortunately I don't think I can house any more in my current tank its a 29 (or maybe even a 25) tall with a pair of erectus with a trio of PJ cardinals ...

Maybe I should set up another tank?

I would tell you that you can never have too many tanks, but obviously I'm not unbiased. Plus, I think I may have a "seahorses on the brain" disease.  There are Hippocampuses in my hippocampus! ;D

Haha! Very clever there! Being completely new to erectus (I've only kept dwarves prior, and kudas way way back ... ) What do you think I can get away with in the 29? Is it too small for two pairs, I'd be willing to rid of the cardinals for more horses!  ;D

You really need about 45 gallons for two pairs. I wish I had better news, but they're much more messy than most fish and have higher oxygen requirements, hence the reason for needing the bigger volume of water. I have kept more seahorses in smaller spaces than recommended, but it's a delicate balancing act, and when something goes wrong, it doesn't go a little wrong, it goes really badly really quickly.

If I were in your shoes, I'd get a 60 cube, and move everyone to that, maybe keep the 29 in storage for either a hospital tank or nursery tank for later on.

Fair enough, it was hard finding the balance between the pair and other tank inhabitants now - but with the protein skimmer, separate refuge, and close monitoring - I've got it down! My only issue was temperature which was recently solved ... (referring to my other thread!  :o )

Though, we have an old 75 gallon laying downstairs along with the 120 gal. that is currently freshwater in our family room. I would love to do a bigger tank, though I don't think that will happen until we either furnish the basement or build the addition onto our house - or until I move out.

One of these days ... and once my pair starts having babies - More tanks are bound to be set up. So I'll just have to keep setting up 10's and 20 gals. until the parents have had enough and give in to setting up the 75 of converting the 120 back to saltwater! -hehe-

I've never had seahorses before. Still in the beginning of doing my research so I probably won't be able to buy this time around (until I'm far more knowledgeable than I am now), but I was wondering if there are any legal complications of owning a seahorse in the US?

I used to work at a Butterfly House and we had a second exhibit featuring various reptiles, amphibians, and fish, and we were looking into possibly getting seahorses but I thought I had read somewhere that it might not be legal or we might not be able to obtain a permit for it. Is this true or was I horribly midled in believing that?

no you don't need any permints to own  any type of seahorse at least not yet   .. reptiles and big cats  as in tigers yes you need  pappers  dragon seahorses from down under  only need a cities perment to sale   and  there being captive bred as we speak   at ocean riders  ...

Oh my gosh, I had no idea! Perhaps it's for the best though that we didn't end up getting them; seahorses sound like they need a lot of loving care and attention to detail to keep alive and happy and I think some of the employees there weren't willing to give that, sadly.

Hi,

I am new to your site but I have a quick question.  Would you be willing to ship to Canada?  I do have an importers license but I am unsure what the cost of a cities export permit would be.  I would like to start a breeding program so any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thx.
