Yellow Lined Seahorse (Hippocampus erectus)
These unique fish have an upright position, a horse-like head, and a prehensile tail. The lined seahorse coloration varies from grey, black, brown, yellow, orange, and red. They range in size from 4” to 7.5”.
The Lined Seahorse is native to the United States and can also be found from Nova Scotia, Canada to southern Venezuela in South America.
Hippocampus erectus do best when kept as a mated pair, or with a small group of its own kind in a species-specific aquarium. They may also be kept with small, passive fish such as, pipefish, dragonets, small gobies, and dartfish.
Proaquatix specimens have been weaned to eat frozen Mysis Shrimp and should be fed 2 to 3 times per day.
