So I have been keeping Seahorses on and off for almost 10 years. I've made lots of mistakes but can honestly say now that I think I've got a handle on it. We decided to upgrade my small nano type tank which housed 1 kuda for almost year to a 100 gallon tank with a 40 gallon sump. I'm PUMPED!!! So now I need more Seahorses. I would like to work my way up to at least 10-15 but want to go slow. Is there anyone out there that is selling captive bred (not net pen) Seahorses?? I will travel as far as Edmonton.

Thanks!

Incredible Aquariums might still have some, they ship.

Those are beauties!

I'm not sure how I feel about having such a delicate creature shipped to me though. Plus I am not sure I live in a place where Fedex or UPS would deliver such an item.

Unless you find a local breeder they will always be shipped, either to you or your retailer, not sure there's a big difference. The best horses I ever had were shipped from Australia, shipping within Canada should be a breeze. With livestock shipping I always pick up from the depot, track the order myself and plan accordingly so no reason you can't do that even if it means using an Edmonton Depot.

The parents of the ones Incredible Aquariums have were shipped from Florida so across Canada should be no problem.

I was hoping maybe there was someone in Etown that was a breeder. I hate paying shipping.

Well I think even if you did find a breeder (which I'm not aware of) in Edmonton you'd pay more for the same quality horse. Also looks to be around $40 flat rate shipping so if Cold Lake qualifies that's a lot cheaper than driving close to 600km round trip.

Big Al's in Edmonton was selling captive bred H.Erectus for $80 a couple weeks ago. If I remember correctly they were in the 3-4" range. Whether they still have any or if they are from a local breeder I couldn't say.

I saw some at Pisces yesterday. Dont remember the breed but I'm sure a quick call and you can find out.
