Saddled Erectus seahorses

Species: Hippocampus erectus, Common name: Lined Seahorse.

Beautiful bright silver saddling markings and tail bands. Line markings are more pronounced as the seahorse matures. Colors are yellow, peach or beige. Color is not fixed and seahorses can change color based on surroundings, diet, mood and other factors. Cirri is present on some individuals. Our breeders have been selected for producing beautiful saddling markings. Every single one is individually unique. They are stunning! If you have specific requests contact us and let us know.

This genetic line of seahorses originates from South Florida. We sell our Captive Bred seahorses when they are 4-5 months old and they are approximately 3-4+ inches. You can expect them to reach 5-7+ inches. 

This is the most common seahorse species hobbyist start out with. They are very hardy and great beginner seahorses!

Breeding: This species typically produces 50-500+ fry. Males are pregnant for 14-21 days. Fry typically hitch from day one. Newly hatched Artemia (brine shrimp) can be used as a first food for fry.

All of our captive bred seahorses are very healthy, active, friendly and full of personality. Our seahorses are trained to eat frozen Mysis shrimp from a young age. We recommend feeding our seahorses Hikari BioPure Mysis shrimp and PE Mysis shrimp twice daily. Seahorses are very social animals. They do best when kept paired or in a group.

Please see our Seahorse Info page to learn more about the care of our seahorses.

Artemia/Brine Shrimp Enrichment

Enriching (feeding) your bbs will make them much more nutritious for your Dwarf seahorses or growing seahorse fry. We enrich our bbs with our own in house enrichment formulated specifically for raising seahorse fry and maintaining Dwarf seahorses. We highly recommend this step as bbs by themselves are not very nutritious. Our in house enrichment was developed by our staff and is what all of our seahorse fry are raised on at our farm as well as our Dwarf seahorses. 

Our enrichment is a formulated mixture of different dry algae, vitamins, probiotics and more. This is what we raise all of our seahorse fry on in house. 

Please refrigerate upon arrival.
