Seahorse guy moved from SoCal

Recommended Posts

Greetings Everyone!

 

I'm so excited to join this society! My name is TJ. I've relocated from LA. I was introduced to you folks from Tom at Upscales Fish & Reptiles LLC. I don't have any equipment just yet but starting super slow on my build. As a start, I'm buying a 60gal acrylic from Tom on friday, then I think I'm gonna build my stand, maybe build a sump. But more to come on the build. I'd like to just start small. 

 

My experience was with breeding seahorses. I've had 5 species. In my fish room, I had 6 100-120 gallon tanks running separately. I've used all sumps with fuges, skimmers, UV and plummed them. 

 

What brings me on here, is I hope to be a part of your community as I can talk about fish for DAYS... So, my goal is to get this one up and running. 

 

I'm going to attach some of the builds, but I don't know how to decrease the sizes...if you're interested in some of the tanks i've had... i'm happy to send them to you!

 

Hopefully you guys get a sense of who I am as a reefer. If any of you need help moving tanks or anything of the sort, hit me up, I'm happy to help in any way I can.

 

Until then, I look forward to talking and getting to know all of you!

Welcome! Glad to have a seahorse expert. I went to a talk about seahorses and ended up with a mated pair of H. Erectus that I am moving into their own seahorse tank.

Welcome to the PNWMAS. I think I remember you from a different site? I'm Kevin from Seahorse.org, Pledosophy most other places ;). I was in Anaheim for a long time and active in the clubs there, but have been up here for the last 10 years or so.

 

I kept/bred seahorses for 13-14 years. Fun animals.

 

Are you going to setup for seahorses or go reef in the 60? Either way hit me up when you get going. I have a few frags and some extra equipment to help ya out if need be.

 

Posting pictures works best if you link from external sites.

 

Welcome to Portland.

Welcome! Seahorses are in my future, but probably not the near future. Would love to try barbouri horses in a reef one day!

 

Looking forward to seeing your build, and we're glad to have you here!

Awesome, let me know if I can help! You might want to start collecting 2 liter bottles of coke! You need about three! For the babies!

Welcome!

 

I am just getting into seahorses. I'll have a tank thread up soon.

Hey let me know! It's great to have a species only tank. Whats the size? Are you getting captive bred? It's probably the best way to go! Let me know if I can help with the build.

I am not planning on trying to raise the babies because it sounds like a lot of work and round the clock care. You're more than welcome to try though. ????

I'm going to get a couple of pairs of captive bred H. erectus and probably a few pipefish.

The tank is a 45 gallon Red Sea E-170. I may hit you up for some breeding pointers at some point.

You should get it through Dan at Seahorsesource.com

 

He and Abbey are great! Erectus are amazingly easy if you have a method. Pipefish captive bred are from Ocean Rider. Let me know I'm happy to help.

Thanks! We actually have a local source of captive bred Erectus. TPA in Salem and TPA WIlsonville stock captive bred Erectus that are bred in Newport by Colby (can't remember his name on this forum). You should stop by and check them out.

Are those your current tanks or back in SoCal? Because they are "da bomb"

They are the ones that I had in SoCal. But I'm looking to do that here. Too..

Lol they are a lot of work. But what type of seahorses? I know a few people that take in babies but the window is less first two days. After that it's tough to keep the brood.
