Mustangs and Hippo. Reidi

I bought a pair of Mustangs from Ocean Rider and they were doing fine. All of a sudden my female died. I constantly monitor my water and I take samples to an aquarium shop and they also monitor it. I have them in a 20 gallon tank with 3 neon gobies. The male seems to be okay. I have an opportunity to get hippocampus reidi from a friend and I would like to know if they interbreed. Also, what should I get, one female or two females and a male, etc.? Thanks.

Hi Susan,

So sorry to hear about your loss.

As for the reidi from your friend..... be sure they are captive bred and eating frozen mysis well. Yes reidi and erectus can inter breed. I do not like to see large species seahorses in less than a 25 to 30g, so in a 20g I would say get the one female.
