 Common Seahorse Pair- The Male is Pregnant


Hippocampus Erectus

a male and female about 4-6 inches.  

The male is pregnant. Common Sea Horses are wild caught.  It is best to have live food for ready for them you receive them.  Often I have them trained to eat frozen gut loaded with SELCO BOOST.  I also suggest having that product on hand to offer what they have been used to getting.

    2 pair of Common Seahorses

    Posted by Unknown on 10th Jan 2016

    Shipping of my 4 seahorses after packaging was prompt. They arrived larger than expected, happy and healthy. I watched both males give birth within the first couple of days :) Priceless! I now have between 100 and 200 fry to take care of. The adults went into my bigger community tank after birthing and are adjusting well. The fry are in my smaller birthing tank and are happy, healthy, and doing very well. I am looking forward to watching them grow :) Thank You! I also wanted to let everyone at Foxy Saltwater Tropicals to know that the herd of common seahorses i received are in good hands, well taken care of and growing fast.

    A newbie finds a friend

    This was my first attempt of buying fish online as well as buying fish online. Jason was so calm and knowledgable when I asked him various questions about his SW fish as well as other fish he doesn't even have in stock. He has made a lifetime customer with me. I wouldn't trust anyone else. He is honest, backs up his product and truly wants you to give them good homes. Besides, he has the best puffers I have ever seen. Outstanding specimens!!!!

    Pair of Common Seahoses

    Posted by Rex Wagner on 25th Sep 2015

    They arrived in good condition. The female seahorse was a little lethargic. After acclimating four hours to the aquarium, both the male and the female seahorse seamed to be doing well. The next morning the female was dead. It has now been four days and the male seahorse is eating and exploring the thirty gallon tank. I sent a Email the day the female died, but haven't received a response yet. All other fish, invertebrates and corals arrived in good condition and are doing great.

    The sea horses are great and are lager than I expected. They are very active but having a hard time getting them to eat frozen foods. Does anyone have anyways to get them to eat frozen foods. Thanks

    Excellent Quality, Top Rate Customer Service

    Posted by Gary on 12th Feb 2015

    I have several pair of younger seahorses which I paid hundreds of dollars per pair for (Ocean Rider). In order to get some experience in raising seahorse fry in anticipation of the younger seahorses breeding someday, I ordered the common pair of seahorses with the pregnant male. Jason did a great job at communicating when the shipment would be sent and ensuring the safe arrival of the seahorses. Although the male has not given birth yet, both seahorses are a lot larger than I ever expected them to be. The thing that makes this company so great is the high quality of the livestock they send and the unmatched customer service. Will definitely order again soon.

    Everyone is alive, safe and happy

    I ordered a common pair of seahorses with the male being pregnant. I received the parcel and opened it. At first I thought both the seahorses were dead. I could see that the male had had about half a dozen fry. There was not much water in the bag either. The horses were very very pale.and didn't move. I got them acclimated right away. it took them a long time , several hours to come around until I was comfortable with them, and that they would survive. After a while I put them into the big tank. took a long time, I really didn't think that they would make it. I went to bed uncertain if they would survive. The next morning they were up and moving and have now started eating frozen mysis. The next day the male gave birth to over 150 fry, most of which are doing great. starting to eat frozen baby brine.
    so it started off shaky but ended up ok so far. thanks guys, I will order from you again.
