    you should practise good quarentine methods when it comes to adding livestock to a pony tank, dont want them getting sick.

    Hi Dorry. It's looking good. Do you mean "Mysis/Mysid" shrimp that you feed the horsies? Are you feeding live or frozen mysid/mysis?

    Also - I would not suggest "not feeding them on Sundays"..... in the wild, these animals eat CONSTANTLY! I know - I had a few too in a 1.2 metre Jewel aquarium (as well ;))....

    They do not have stomach's, and their digestive system goes straight from their mouths, to their anuses.

    So - they NEED to feed constantly, else they will not survive.

    Good luck in keeping these beauties alive! I had mine for a year, before they died :(

    The yellow'ish/green'ish one with the stripes on the tail, is called a "tiger tail sea horse". I had two of these....
