Reply To: H erectus

Dear Ozelbialy:

Yes, of course, Hippocampus erectus are without a doubt the most widely kept seahorses in the USA because they are now highly domesticated and supremely well adapted for aquarium conditions.

In fact, Mustangs, lemon yellow Sunbursts, orange Sunbursts, and Pintos are all different color morphs of Hippocampus erectus seahorses developed by Ocean Rider after decades of selective breeding.

If you contact me by email at the following address ([email protected]), Ozelbialy, I will enroll you in the Ocean Rider seahorse training program and send you your free copy of the Ocean Rider seahorse training manual as soon as I receive your email.

The seahorse training manual is very comprehensive, consisting of several hundred pages of text with more than 250 full life and color illustrations, and it will explain everything you need to know in order to keep Ocean Rider seahorses successfully in a home aquarium. Ocean Rider provides the training manual to all of their clients and customers completely free of charge as a service to help assure that everyone who makes a purchase from Ocean Rider is well prepared to give their ponies the best possible care.

In addition, I will also send you a copy of an extremely well-illustrated article on Mustangs and Sunbursts (Hippocampus erectus) that explains all about them, including extensive photo galleries on both the ‘stangs and ‘bursts so that you can download the document, save it on your computer, and then read through the information and enjoy the pictures at your convenience. I should mention that virtually all of the photographs in the Mustang photo gallery and Sunburst photo gallery were taken by home hobbyists who are the proud owners of the prized Hippocampus erectus ponies shown in the pictures, so looking through the photos will give you a much better idea of what the Mustangs and Sunbursts are really like in a home aquarium.

Best wishes with all your fishes!

Happy Trails!
