This genetic line of seahorses originates from South Florida. These are large breeding size captive bred seahorses and they are approximately 4-5+ inches. We select some of the largest seahorses in the batch and hold them for further grow out to produce our large Erectus. Since they are the largest and fastest growers these make great breeding stock. They are very impressive and awesome for larger display aquariums too. You can expect them to reach 5-7+ inches. These are breeding size seahorses.
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.
