We are extremely excited to offer our new captive bred Dwarf seahorses!
Species: Hippocampus zosterae
Our new Dwarf seahorses are 100% captive bred and raised at our farm in Maryland. They are approximately 3/4-1 inch in size and will reach 1-1.5 inches with maturity.
Feeding-Very Important! Please Read!
Dwarf seahorses, unlike our other captive bred seahorse varieties, eat live artemia nauplii (baby brine shrimp) and need to be fed ~2-3 times daily. Please see our Article below for information on hatching baby brine shrimp if you are not already familiar.
Dwarf seahorses can be stocked at about 10-12 seahorses per gallon. Lower stocking densities are fine too. We recommend a 3-10 gallon aquarium size for Dwarf seahorses. We highly recommend keeping your aquarium temperature at 70-74 F. For more information on setting up an aquarium for your Dwarf seahorses check out the article below "Dwarf Seahorses-Setting up a Proper Aquarium".
Color and markings vary. Cirri may be seen in some individuals and can come and go. Color is not fixed in any seahorse species and changes based on mood, surrounding, diet, lighting and many other factors.
Savvy Farm Enrichment and Brine Shrimp Eggs
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.
