New 75G....H. Erectus seahorse tank
Here I go again. Yet another tank. (to replace the 47G column I can't reach the bottom on, lol)
I'm setting up this tank to house "captive bred H. Erectus". NONE of my current seahorses will go into this tank. I don't know what the seahorses I currently have are carriers of (vibro, glugea, ect.) I haven't had the best of luck with the seahorses I got from the pet store, so I decided to start this tank for the seahorses that I will be getting, all from the same breeder and disease free. All of my other seahorses that I currently have will be going into the 65G that is next to this one. I will not be using the same nets or any utensils between the tanks to ensure that no pathogens are transferred from one tank to another. I'm not even using the same water change buckets. I've had my fill of unhealthy horses from pet stores.
Anyways, here is the pics of the tank and stand. I'm ordering 100% live sand shipped overnight to add to this tank. No seahorses will go into this tank untill well after the cycle completes and all of the macros have grown in. It could be 6 months before that happens. I don't care how long it takes. I'm also cooking some live rock to ensure there are no nasties on it. I won't be seeding the sand with sand from another tank either. Like I said, I'm not taking any chances of transferring anything bad into this tank. I will seed it with critters from inland aquatics and such.
