Special Delivery!

In preparation for Alyssa’s research on seahorse feeding preferences in wild vs captive seahorses, we received a delivery of seahorses from the Keys today! Everyone is doing well. One male gave birth to four babies in transit and 5 males are very, very pregnant! The received their first meal of B-CU cultured copepods and gobbled them up (see last video)!

Feeding trials are set to begin next week. Stay tuned for updates!
