My name is TJ, I'm a seahorse addict

« posted: 2 years ago »
Hello Everyone,

Some of you may already know me, but I wanted to formally introduce myself to the forum. My name is TJ, I am a seahorse addict. I've been addicted for about a year now, and my addiction is turning me to a fascination towards breeding seahorses as a hobby. I'm fairly new to this so i've yet to attain a full fry to adulthood. My tanks include (several)

180 gallon + 55 gallon sump - 3 Reidi, 6 Erectus, 1 Hybrid Tank (all captive bred)
120 gallon + 40 gallon sump - 3 Barbouri Tank (all captive bred)
100 gallon + 55 gallon sump - 2 Kuda Tank (all captive bred)
70 gallon   + 40 gallon sump - 2 Multibanded Pipes (WC), 1 Spotted Mandarin (WC)
60 gallon   + 40 gallon sump - 1 Comes (captive bred)

I have a busy schedule with husbandry and trying to run this household. I am learning through forums, helpful tips from Tami and Dan, and learning from pure observation.

I hope to be a valuable asset by passing on the learning that I've had thus far and paying it forward to future Snickers.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Saturday...and I'll upload some fun photos.

Good Morning TJ.  My name is Dawn and i guess I have to admit that I too am an addict.  I am sure you will soon have fry that make it to adulthood.  Tami was a great help to me last winter when I was raising fry.  I will be glad to help answer any questions as you come across perplexities in the fry raising process.

You surely have some pretty ponies and attractively designed tanks.

Welcome, TJ! I'm also new here, and have been keeping seahorses for about a year. Your tanks are beautiful and you clearly have a busy time with all those tanks! I have a 40 gallon and that seems like a lot of work to me, so wow - great job on taking good care of your syngathids and various other fish!  :)

TJ, Hope you don't mind if I offer a greeting on your thread!
Hi Serene_Blue!  Welcome to fusedjaw.  It is always nice to meet a new seahorse hobbyist.  Like you I feel like I have my hands full with my 36 gallon display.
We would love to see pics of your seahorses.

Thanks vlangel! I'm preparing a rather lenghty post now, full of pictures and information. I took a while to get it together, since I recently had laser eye surgery and couldn't look at a screen. I've seen some of your seahorse pictures too, and they are wonderful  :)
