    seahorse problem

    My seahorse seems to have air built up in his pouch.Is there a way to get it out?He now spend all day floating at the top of the tank.I heard someone say that you can take a pin and pop the air out by poking the pin into the pouch.
    Is this right?

    Thanks

    jim do a search on google about this, there's a way to massage the air out without hurting the horse. i was reading a couple weeks ago and it was posted by a professional breeder in the states.
