Hawaiian Hippocampus fisheri

Hawaiian Hippocampus fisheri

These  rare pygmy  seahorse lives in the deep ocean and migrates vertically with the zooplankton. They may  be seen off shore at night while diving or  night fishing.   These seahorses are small and will only get to be  about 2 inches as an adult!  They will  eat  frozen chopped mysis shrimp and copepods.  The babies of these seahorses are one of  the smallest size with a very tiny mouth!

 

A large  aquarium is not recommended for this breed  as they are only  about 2 inches long as a full grown adult. This is not the  large 6- 8 inch  (adult size)Hawaiian reef dwelling seahorses called Hippocampus hilonis.  Hippocampus hilonis is not available for sale as a pet but is available for adoption and  release from our Seahorse Hawaii Foundation.
