Hi,
I am uploading a picture of my pregnant male seahorse.
I would love if some of you breeders could guesstimate how far along he is?

I'm no help either but very excited for you, baby seahorses are some of the tiniest cutest things ever!
I saw some at my Lfs last year as the ones they'd got in had a pregnant male among them & had given birth while there.
I'll be keeping everything crossed that all goes well for you, & you have to post loads of pics of their progress

TracyH67, he did not make it. His little babies didn't either. My hubby was home and I was gone so not sure exactly what went wrong. I had added a canister to help with filtration but not sure really what happened.. Big Bummer!

claireputput That is a bummer. I am currently treating mine after some symptoms of internal parasites became apparent in two of the ponies; so I'm treating the entire tank. It's very stressful for me right now, no skimmer while under treatment! And of course I don't know what to expect with the pregnant one. *sigh* I'll let you know how it goes.

Ty Lucy. It really was a bummer!
Seahorses really are a lot of work. I am fairly sure that I do not want to try to raise babies-at least for now.
I hope things work out with yours TracyH67 but try to keep a really close eye on things as it can go down fast in the world of sea horses-I am sure I don't have to tell you that!
