    Don't know about the fry as I am also learning this, but I also have Kuda seahorses.
    Are they eating?
    I think one of the big things with them is providing ideal conditions and deworming them properly.

    Hi Dorry. I believe that "Brenda" (Anemone on the "specialists" forums) is the lady that I was mentioning to you (thanks to Chikaboo!")...

    Ask this question at Anemone's forum! You are sure to get a decent answer. Else - have a browse through the threads in her forum! :)

    Ideally you Want a kreisel tank (jelly fish tank) you will also want phyto and rotifer cultures along with hatching baby brine shrimp. Are you 100% sure about the species? How about some pictures of them
