Misc Seahorse & Syngnathid Info / Re: Seahorse Xray
« Last post by schlegelii on 10 months ago »
I'm not sure how many members are in Westchester NY or close by, but I would be interested in x-raying other seahorse's with buoyancy issues at no charge. Contact through PM if your interested.

What did the x-ray show you?
I doubt that the ordinary seahorse hobbyist has any access to x-raying their seahorses. Even more doubtful would be how to read the x-ray to give a diagnosis.

Thank for checking in, I know a lot of these threads go dead after a while. He has been treated with Diamox, tripple sulfa and kanapex since the posting. Today buoyancy looks normal. As well as the xray. I'm going to do another day to be sure.

Hi,
 I have a floating seahorse, I've isolated it and stated treatment with Diamox. I have access to xrays and thought I would share this with the group. I also curious if anyone had other xrays of  seahorse to share.

Thanks,
  Jeremy

Misc Seahorse & Syngnathid Info / Re: Red bugs and seahorses

Can't help much as the only red "bugs" I've experienced is red flat worms.
Sorry rayjay, I had not checked on this forum for a few days.  I decided that they were not red bugs as more researched turned up that you need acros for red bugs.  I have no acros and have not even added a new coral in 6 months or more.  I have a feeling they are tigger pods as I did add those at one time.  Now that I do not have shrimp or a small red legged hermit, perhaps they could finally flourish.

As my tank settles in more I have noticed a healthy population of copepods on the glass.  This made me happy until I also noticed that a lot of them are red.  I have never had red bugs before and if that is what these are I am guessing they are harmless to the seahorses and probably not even a threat to my coral which are mushrooms, zoas, palys and leathers.  I am just checking in case I am wrong.

Aquarium / Re: Suitable seahorse tank
« Last post by vlangel on 11 months ago »
I also agree with rayjay and leliataylor about 16 gallons being too small.  You will have the large frequent water changes but if you have any live rock and ornamentations you will find husbandry tedious because you will not have much room to work.  Of course husbandry is very important to maintaining water quality too as any detritus or uneatten food can fuel pathogenic bacteria.

Well they like the room, but IMO it is MOST DEFINITELY a water quality issue.
