Tank Raised Seahorses 4 Horse pack

Set of 4 Captive Bred Seahorses - 

The Lined Seahorse, Hippocampus erectus, is considered by many hobbyists to be the most attractive of all the seahorses. These are young and the size is about 2-3 inches. The coloration of these tank raised seahorses range from shades of black, to gray to brown. Their coloration may change in the aquarium, and is highly dependent on the colors of its environment.  As they mature and become ready to mate the male lined seahorse dance around, show off his pouch and may have color changes.  If the female is interested they will tangle tails and dance as she deposits up to 600 eggs in his pouch.  It usually takes about 2 weeks then the male will birth as many 50 to 400 babies.

These are tank raised seahorses already acclimated to living in an aquarium environment and these seahorses have been trained to eat frozen brine shrimp.  The brine shrimp are gut loaded with a product called SELCO BOOST. It has omega 3 and multiple vitamins along with an appetite stimulant.  I suggest having a bottle of this available when they arrive.  add an extra squirt to the shrimp as they thaw out to help jump start them feeding in their new home. 

Looking for a perfect tank mate for your new seahorses? The Pipefish makes an ideal tank partner. It comes from the same family of fish as seashorses.

    Love seeing the Ups guy pull up to my house and asks what's in the box and when I told him seahorses he asks to see them. I open the box and they were all little happy swimmers. Except 1 which Jason had no problems sending a replacement... Now the family is complete and all eating and bouncing around very happily.. Thank you Jason

    seahorses

    I was a little concerned about buying a 4 pack of these, because I really like trying to breed the animals I keep, and I didn't want to get 4 males or 4 females. They are a little small to sex accurately, but I'm about 90% sure I received 2 pairs--exactly what I was hoping for. And the price was great! Who else sells captive raised seahorses for $37.50 each!

    I've been very happy with everything I've purchased. Everything has arrived in great condition. (Though the bags did leak a little this order.)

    Were stuck in shipping for an extra day and a half but still survived (barely). All back to health over some weeks and look good. 4 horse pack was a good deal for these.
