Aquarium Conditioned-Royal Gramma Basslet-Gramma loreto

We are excited to offer one of our favorite fish, the Royal Gramma Basslet. These fish have nice bright bold purple and yellow coloring and are robust! This species is native to the Caribbean. In the aquarium they often will find a cave or area in the rock that they prefer to hang out in but will also come out in the open. They are generally easy to pair up when adding two of them to the aquarium at the same time. These are sure to add bright color to your aquarium and are very hardy and great beginner fish.

Our Aquarium Conditioned fish are quarantined and observed at our aquaculture facility before offered for sale. We prophylactically deworm all our fish as well as run an anti-parasitic treatment on all of our fish.  Our Aquarium Conditioned fish are trained to eat small pellets such as PE pellets, TDO pellets, frozen Mysis shrimp, Calanus, and more. 

Size: ~1-1.5 inches. They will reach up to 2-3 inches with maturity.

We recommend housing only one or a pair of this species in the same tank. They are peaceful fish and friendly to keep with our captive bred seahorses. These fish are very hardy.  

 

This is for a Male/Female Erectus Seahorse Pair. 

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.
