Captive Bred Seahorses are relatively hardy and adjust well to life in captivity if maintained in water conditions with low current and plenty of branching gorgonias, algae, or coral decorations. Because Seahorses have difficulty competing for live food when other fish are present, these fish are best kept in a tank containing only Seahorses and Pipefish.

Seahorses & Pipefish are unusual looking animals with captivating expressive movements and curious behaviors. Nonetheless, these “tube-mouthed” fishes have a reputation for being delicate and difficult. While they do require special care from a knowledgeable aquarist, with the proper diet and habitat, seahorses and pipefishes can and do make interesting aquarium specimens.
