    Looking for southern erectus

    Hi everyone,

    I am looking to buy some southern erectus, preferable cb, but I might consider wc ones since it is getting harder to find cb ones. I know DanU comes highly recommended, but I believe he is out of stock right now and Draco closed, so who is left?

    Has any one ordered from the Northeast Brine Shrimp company? Livestock They claim to have tr small guys, but the rest may be wc.

    I really want to mix up my genetic stock and my current broodstock haven't been breeding since I redesigned my tanks. I have several tanks and I had to move them briefly to smaller tanks while I got their new setups ready.

    I'd appreciate any insight into this company if anyone has any!

    seahorsefan,

    to Talking Reef Forum, and so much more.

    I have visited Northeast Brine Shrimp company and talked with the owner Michael McMaster. While I can't say I know him, I would trust him based on my visit and tour of his facility. I know once my aquaculture facility is up and running I will be doing business with Mike.

    Here is another source for horses I also trust, Seahorse Source, the ultimate place for captive bred seahorses. Have you looked into them?

    Thanks! I will definitely consider buying from Mike then. Seahorsesource is out of stock currently I had heard.

    I called Mike today and had a nice chat with him. He remembered my visit. Mike said he had some horses in stock. Give him a shout.

    If you go to Seahorse.org there are always hobbyists that have some for sale and some are even shipping. There is a forum there for that. A lot of them are Dan's "relatives".

    I just wanted to post that I ordered 5 WC female erectus from Northeast Brine Shrimp a few weeks ago and they are doing well in quarantine. A couple were on the skinnier side, but all converted to frozen PE mysis within the first week, and are looking a little fatter. I would order from them again.

    Just to update...all 5 females are doing great, they took to frozen real quick and fattened right up. Added males to their tank a few weeks ago and 2 weeks later our first batch of fry from them.

    It sounds like you'll have a nicely stocked tank. Just remember not to mix any other horses with WC erectus. They tend to be loaded with cooties.

    Congrats...

    don't do it dood... don't do it....

    Oh wait...where'd I hear that before

    I'm soooo glad I'm not married to the Hippocampus anymore. Believe me, I love them and if I were home every day, I'd do it again in a heartbeat. The problem is, you can't even take a weekend away without having to find someone to care for them.
