Image shown in a photo of the actual fish you will receive. We have had this seahorse for 3+ weeks and trained it to eat frozen mysis!The Lined Seahorse, Hippocampus erectus, is a large colorful fish that many hobbyists consider the most attractive of all the seahorses. They inhabit a wide range of habitats in the Western Atlantic Ocean on the East coast of the United States. The coloration of these Captive-Bred 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.
Fast, aggressive fish will out-compete the Lined Seahorse for food. They will also feed upon amphipods, and other small crustaceans found in live rock. They will also accept vitamin-enriched adult brine shrimp, but should not make up a majority of their diet. They are slow, deliberate feeders and prefer two or more small feedings per day.
Seahorses spend most of their time clinging to seagrass with their prehensile tail rather than swimming. Its many unusual features and habits make it perhaps the most spectacular fish that may be kept in the home aquarium.
