Photo Caption: My horses staring down their food (live Ghost Shrimp) I swear that goes on for at least 5 minutes, sometimes 15 minutes before they eat it. It's beyond me why the shrimp always just stares back at them instead of running. haha.

saltwater fish - hippocampus erectus - black seahorse stocking in 30 gallons tank - I was scraping off the algae on the front of my tank with a toothbrush. This is why I'm called the Sea horse whisperer. I can't do anything in my tank without them coming to hitch on my hand. They were sold to me as tank raised, but I think they are wild caught because they only take live food.. That makes it even more puzzling as to why they would want to hitch on me . haha.

About Yourself: I'm a commuting college student in Pittsburgh. This is my first saltwater tank (Started 1/8/09) , but definitely not my first fish tank. I decided to make the switch because my fiance is currently serving in Iraq and I needed something to keep me busy. These fish have certainly done the trick, and have also cheered me up more than anything. I spend hours on end in front of this tank.
