    They are eating frozen mysids. And they dont have names yet, i was thinking of going with roman/greek god theme.
    Got any suggestions for the pair? (girl/guy pair)

    Hmmm . . . . i will have to see if they live up to the names.

    I got them from Dan and Abby at seahorsesource.com. They are best IMO. They have really great pricing and are really involved in the seahorse scene. They have taken all of my calls and answered everything with great knowledge and patience. Plus they are also captive bred, making them much hardier than the wild caught ones and they are eating frozen when you get them.

    Right now they are maybe 3 inches long, and they get to be about 6 inches. They are only 4 months old.

    Cute little buggers.

    oh, are you thinking of the dwarfs?

    Those guys are so tiny, i just love them as well. Once i get this 46 gal together, i want to make them their own pico tank. I think a few people are planing on doing them in the pico contest so im doing something different.

    Plus id like to build some sort of shrimp hatcher for the tank so they arent quite so much work before i get them.

    Considering them for the Deco contest, but think they might be too hard to feed.
