Not to brag, show off or anything (well, maybe a little :redface:)...but this info will be really beneficial if we ever wanna trade our horses...

I have:

4x (2M/2F) H.erectus (WC)
3x (2M/1F) H.comes (TR/CB...not sure)
3x (2M/1F) H.reidi (CB)
2x (1M/1F) H.angustus (CB)
3x (1M/2F) H.barbouri (CB)
100+ H.zosterae (adults are WC, my home CB are growing up)

Each species has their own tank...ranging from 12gal to 65gal...

And obviously...except the dwarfs...no one's breeding :(

My wishlist...
H.abdominalis
H.breviceps

My list:
14 home grown reidi, two of which I am keeping but I have 8 males and 4 females that will be going, some of them are runts of the litter.
I have a pair each Seahorse Sanctuary bred Australian seahorses:
reidi, angustus, barbouri
I have two tank raised comes not sexed yet. breeder unknown
I have 3 erectus, two females and one male. breeder unknown
I have on order, 8 captive bred reidi as well as 8 captive bred erectus.
My want list is greater than my capacity to be able to keep.

You guys make me jealous. :mrgreen:

Give me a month.... :biggrin:

By the end of May I am hoping BWA will be a leading supplier of seahorses in Canada.

You don't see me brag about which acans/zoo etc I keep, coz I have zero, LOL :biggrin:

My last reef tank (well...my husband's last reef tank) got convinced to be switched out to a FW S.American. Haha...meanwhile I kept all the rocks and sand! :twised:

Ken, with my knowledge at this point, you already are close to the top.
I only know of one that brings in more true captive bred and his name is Ken also.
At the rate you are progressing, it will take some doing for another store to catch you.

I will be flying out to Florida in May to a friends wedding.

Making this a business trip also and will be meeting with some suppliers. ORA and Beth are at the top of my list, and a few other less known seahorse suppliers.

I have found suppliers are more willing to work with you more when they have actually met you in person, not just another voice on the phone or email.

Hoping this will be a productive trip.

Hopefully you meant "apt" not "inept".
