Congratulations!

Great shots by the way too.

You know, when they mature a bit, I have an empty tank that I can change into something... :)

Absolutely incredible! They're so tiny! How long will you have to keep them in that container for, and what sort of care do they require while they're that size?

They should technically stay in there for the next 6 weeks, but I plan on moving them to a little more elaborate set-up this weekend. As far as general maintenance, they require multiple feedings of freshly hatched artemia and daily as well as daily 50% water changes because the little guys us the bathroom roughly once every 25-30 minutes. I hope to have them eating frozen cyclopeeze within the next 3 weeks or so. i will do my best to keep you guys posted as well as try to borrow another camera in the next few days for some new pictures, thanks for all the support : )

just wanted to give everyone an update, so far out of 44 original babies i have lost 3 leaving me with a total count of 41. They are doing great feeding on freshly hatched baby brine 2x a day and I am now doing 50% water changes atleast once a day, (that baby brine is messy). I have tommorrow off so i plan on setting up a more elaborate system in preparation for the next batch of babies to come. Will post more pics when I get the chance. Thanks again for the support!

ya, a decent mortality rate, (usually close to 30%), can be expected when raising seahorses. It's a shame, but they're so delicate it's almost unavoidable.
