hi everyone. Update on problem I'm having with my seahorse.
Had 1 erectus that started scratching herself.. was so happy to get help from someone here. #rayjay. I couldn't have done this without him. Well anyways...my 2nd erectus stopped eating so I started furan 2 treatment yesterday. Happy to say she's upright today and not sure if she's eating yet. She (oreo) was not active at all. Today i did 50% water change and repeated the treatment. I also put my 5 dwarf seahorses since I lost 1 yesterday I believe. (Sorry my days are all screwed up) may have been today.
I'm proud to say I transferred all 17 fry to a 1-2g with heavy open air. that they all recover and do well. I was in tears when I lost my nugget and papa dwarf. 20200903_214223.jpg

Oreo ate a couple mysis today. Thats a great sign. Im so happy. Spent 4 hrs disinfecting my display tank, cleaning the sand, doing water change on 10g bucket with furan2 where oreo(erectus and 4 dwarfs are being treated), put all 17 fry in A 1.3g. There is a light at end of tunnel. Very time consuming but very well worth it.
Time to recycle my display tank. Yikes

It's really great you are willing to put in the effort to save these seahorses. There are many that wouldn't bother with the trouble and just quit.

transferred my erectus and 5 dwarfs back into the show tank. They are all doing good. They are eating and happy to be back in their home. However, my fry dies 1 by 1. Out of 17 (dwarfs) I'm down to 0. So bummed. Dont know what happened. Hope they will have more.

It’s same feeling that you would have if it were your kids needing help
I cried when I lost one of my erectus named nugget, and whem i lost 1 of the papa dwarfs. And oh man. I was so mad and cried when I lost all 17 fry
