Seahorses are probably the most recognizable fish in the world due to their unusual appearance and habits. They are very social, curious fish that are fun to watch while they interact with their surroundings, each other, and even their owners. These social fish thrive when kept as a mated pair or in small groups in a species-only aquarium.
For the best results, seahorses should be kept in a separate, species-only tank that is 30 gallons or larger with multiple Gorgonians which they can grab with their prehensile tails. Seahorses will breed readily in the aquarium when they are fully mature. The male will carry the young for approximately 3 weeks, at which time they will be released into the water column. Provide a separate aquarium with live rock for the new born sea horses. Feed these new born freshly hatched vitamin enriched brine shrimp.
