Hippocampus Fisheries tank requirements

Was just looking at the Care Sheet for the Fisheri seahorses.  Was curious as to the tank requirements for these smaller ponies. I would imagine they are very compatible with OR pipefish, as their food requirements are similar.  Please advise.

Dear Don:

Dear Don:

Yes, sir, the Hippocampus fisheri are quite compatible with the Ocean Rider banded pipefish and would do well in an aquarium designed for the good-sized banded pipes.

Although they are relatively small, the Hippocampus fisheri are deep water, open-ocean seahorses that remain pelagic (i.e., free swimming) all of their lives, and they are therefore active swimmers that require more swimming room than other seahorse species of similar size.

I recommend a tall tank of at least 30 gallons for both the Hippocampus fisheri and the banded pipefish for best results.

I will send you a document that discusses the aquarium requirements for Hippocampus fisheri in greater detail via e-mail, Don, so that you can download the document, save it on your computer, and then read through the information at your convenience.

Best wishes with all your fishes, sir!

Happy Trails!
