Re: Hippocampus Erectus Input

I kept horses with blue striped pipefish in my 29 for a year or so. the pipefish really seemed more intersting and active.I ran a sump with a mag 300 and had two of the smallest hydors in the tank.IMO the 29 was to big for the horses.They were lazy and not really the type to hunt for food.The flow never bothered them,they did have places to hook to out of the current.
Best advice is to only purchase captive BRED horses.Captive raised could still mean a horse taken from the wild,but "trained " to feed on whatever.Mine were all good eating mysis and the bugs in the tank.I purchased only captive bred,they were a little more expensive ,but worth it IMO.
