Hello fellow bloggers!(I've always wanted to say that)
I'm Katie and I recently became the owner of two beautiful [wild caught]seahorses.(type unknown) Origined from the Florida Keys. They are currently on a diet of live ghost shrimp. I've had them for about 3 or 4 days, and they still don't seem to show much intrest in eating. I've even just put some of that aqua garlic stuff that makes the fish want to eat, but they just don't pounce. They show intrest in the ghost shrimp, but they don't really put much effort into catching and eating them. I mean-- I may just be overreacting, but I would really like some info about eating problems in seahorses. If anyone has any information(about ANYTHING to do with seahorses) that you think would be useful to a young aquarist with new seahorses, I would appreciate it greatly.
And I want you all to know that I didn't just wake up one morning and feel like getting seahorses, I put alot of research into it and ALOT of allowence. I will do anything to help my new seahorses thrive.

thanks!
so what would you reccomend to feed them?
I've put all of the ghostshrimp in this one gallon tank with an air pump, and they all died. Then i got 7 shrimp, and i put them in the tank, after one day they had also all died. I don't know what to do?
Would LPS's have frozen food? I hope I can convince them to eat!
