Exciting News!

Some of you may well be aware that I have been an avid reader of a fantastic site dedicated to syngnathidae, called FusedJaw.  FusedJaw brings together many hugely knowledgeable people from the field for articles, photography and information.  

The great news is that FusedJaw now has a forum and I'm really excited and incredibly flattered to have been asked to join the moderating team.

So, if you want to find out more about seahorses, and discuss everything seahorsey, you can join up here:  The forum part is still in its infancy at the moment but there are exciting times ahead :)

Hope to see you there!

And Yet More Babies!

It seems that my seahorses are determined to thrust me back into the throws of dealing with newborns and so now my babies are having babies!  

I wasn't 100% certain but thought that a couple of my January babies had very impressive looking pouches.  Well, now I know why!  Only 6 babies from them so far but I'm almost certain there are more to follow!

These pictures are from those that were born at the weekend...I hope you like them.

Ooops, sorry about the dirty glass!

My male H. erectus has decided to make me work again and this morning has given birth to his first brood in 5 months!

Well, my little girl didn't hold her popcorn colour.  She's slowly turning a more vibrant colour like the rest of "the yellows".  As the smaller April babies are starting to catch up with the bigger ones, I've added some from the other fry tank to "the yellows" tank so I'm thinking that could be why she is adopting a darker yellow.  In fact, I'm almost struggling to pick her out from the rest!

Its been a few months, but my adult male is pregnant again.  I have to admit, its been lovely having such a long break from newborns but I'm quite looking forward to trying my hand at them again.  If my male is true to form, then he will deliver a week on Saturday.  I will of course keep you posted.
