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.

    Okay this is the coolest place ever. Ordered a pair and got 6. A couple look pregnant. They’ve been thriving in the tank too! Every day getting to watch them has been so entertaining!!

    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! :-)

    I have a question

    Posted by nan on 19th Mar 2021

    This seahorse is too small. I don't know what to feed it. The aquarium sold too much frozen shrimp. His mouth couldn't eat at all. I don't know what to do

    Never ordered from Foxy Saltwater before and I was impressed with the great job they did packaging and all seahorses were alive and well! Pics and videos at Kenneth's Tropical Fish on Instagram!
