We find tree sponges to be great live hitching posts with our larger species of captive bred seahorses. Unlike our other Orange Tree Sponges, these are a Gulf of Mexico species. They are smoother texture and we find them to be an easier to keep sponge. The seahorses love the thick branches.  We recommend moderate to higher water flow with sponges. Colors and shapes vary, they are beautiful. These are sure to add bright color to your aquarium! It is best to place them in an area algae will not grow on them with plenty of water flow.

Sponges are filter feeders, and non photosynthetic. We do not recommend exposing them to air! When you receive sponges from our farm we pack them in water with no air pocket. We recommend opening the bag underwater in your aquarium to release the sponge to avoid air exposure.  

Sponges are safe to keep with our captive bred seahorses.
