Dwarf Sea Horse 2 Pair

Dwarf Sea Horse - Scientific name Hippocampus Zosterae

Two pairs of dwarf seahorses.  Let these happy couples give you lots of fun watching them cruise around your home aquarium. 

It may be best if these little guys are in a tank just for them so they do not have to compete for food. I recommend feeding them newly hatched brine shrimp with the Artemia species being the best quality. I would also suggest a tank with a low current and no coral. If they attach to coral it may burn them. Soft Corals (like Gorgonians) are safe.

    Dwarf Seahorse Pairs

    The shipment arrived on schedule and in good condition. It's usually a wonderful thing when you get more than you ordered. All are healthy and eating well, with one young pair mating the day they were placed in the tank, and the male is currently pregnant. I couldn't have asked for a more pleasant online shopping experience. Jason and his team are fantastic at providing outstanding customer service. I'll be placing another order with them very soon.

    I ordered 2 pairs of dwarf seahorses and they sent me 6! They all arrived happy and healthy. They are each so uniquely colored too. I will definitely be ordering from this website again!

    You need a corral, not a coral!

    I recall seeing these little dudes advertised in the back of comic books when I was younger many moons ago and always wanted to try them. Back then they were sold with a shaving brush plant and a tiny plastic tank which was, unfortunately, a sure source of an early death. These little guys showed up in great condition and settled right into the tank! From day one they've been so much fun to watch and people can't believe how small they are.

    Be prepared however: The cost doesn't stop with the fish. You'll need to hatch out baby brine for frequent feedings, especially if you have babies, so you'll have to get a setup for that. An alternative for the adults *only* is live copepods, which Foxy carries, but it's a good idea to use both (the copepods are too large for the babies to eat from my experience). Another useful hint: Keep the bottom of the tank bare. That way the health and care of the little guys is made easier. Good water quality is paramount and the bare bottom makes vacuuming off detritus that much easier. The horses don't seem to care as long as they have something to hold onto. I purchased a whip gorgonian from Foxy and they seem happy with that (I also have a ceramic seahorse that they'll glom onto!) These guys should be kept by themselves as the Guinness Book of World's Records lists them as the world's slowest fish!!! Another good idea is to keep them in a relatively small tank so you can keep them well dosed with food. Learn from my mistake though: I use a turkey baster to suction the brine from the hatchery directly to the tank. Not thinking, I've been using tap water to hatch the brine instead of RO water, which has resulted in too many dissolved solids in the seahorse tank. It has started to become overrun with slime algae and so have some of the horses! I've switched to using RO water to hatch the brine. I don't like the idea of rinsing it first because I think they're healthier without it.
    Oh, and Foxy surprised us with a couple of extras (I had ordered 10 including a pregnant pair). Thanks Foxy! :-)
