Re:Dragon Sea Moth?


:ohmy: Hi Chris,

Your little seamoth would make an excellent friend to the ponies, However if Im not mistaken he is on the redlist as a threatened species. I have already looked into him for my aquarium companion. The reason they are difficult in the hobby is due to the depth they normally live in the wild, it is hard to duplicate this in an aquarium setting. They also are heavy eaters and would be as difficult to feed from my understanding as seahorse fry. They also prefer hanging in pairs, so for the sake of stress buy two. And this is probably not practical due to the rareity, as well as price of them. If you need more info try doing a search engine on the scientific name Eurypegasus Draconis, They are also known as Dwarfish, little moths, and dragonfish be careful with the latter make sure the scientific name applies. You may order something off the internet without photo and wind up with a snake looking creature with the teeth and appetite of a pirahna. My suggestion is to hold out till OR gets us some tank raised pipefish for companions. I have studied or tried everything else. LOL Good Luck with your search. Hey pete how’d I do. Smile
