Recommended Posts

I have stumbled upon these little critters I cant ID in my seahorse tank please help! So far I can see around 8 of them....

What are they and are they in need of a rapid evacuation? 

Thanks

Hydroid jellyfish, I believe they are bad news for seahorses as they can sting.

You have any idea of the best way to get these dead?

Cant have my seahorses under stress from these little busters...

Panacur would be the product to research. I am not sure if hydroids are any danger to adult horses or just the fry + dwarf types? @vlangel  ?

 

Beautiful ponies 🙂 I have never kept them myself but follow a few threads with them :wub:

Hi folks, sorry about taking so long to get back on this, we've been vacationing.  

 

Hydroids are not a danger to adult seahorses of the greater species.  Just as Tamberav said, they only harm fry and dwarf seahorses.
