The book is aimed primarily at the aquarist who is just starting out with seahorses, although more experienced keepers will still find something of interest. Seahorses are an exceptional and fascinating fish that live in coastal areas round most of the world. Only a few years ago keeping seahorses was not widely encouraged due mainly to the difficulty in feeding wild caught specimens as they would not eat frozen foods. Wild caught seahorses, being more used to hunting in the wild for natural live food, know nothing about eating dead, frozen foods! However more recently, keeping seahorse in an aquarium has been made easier due to widespread captive breeding which has played an enormous role in making it possible to keep seahorses at home. You can now set up a successful seahorse aquarium at home and even breed them in the aquarium environment. All you need is the right equipment and advice to set you on the path to success. Contained within this book is everything you need to know to you get started in this fascinating hobby. From buying your first seahorses, the equipment and setting it up, to feeding, routine maintenance and dealing with any potential health issues. As several of the species will breed readily in the aquarium there is a detailed chapter on breeding and raising seahorses. It is important to understand something about the breeding process in order to be prepared and to fully understand the commitment required. You will also find information related to the near desperate plight of the seahorse in the wild, which could become extinct in the next 20 to 30 years in some parts of the World, unless major changes are brought into effect! Championing their fight for survival are two charitable organisations in the UK and Ireland. I'm sure you will enjoy reading this book and have many happy, problem free years keeping and caring for these fascinating creatures.
