Re:Harve and Chloe are parents!

Pete Giwojna

Dear Jan:

It’s good to hear that Harve regained his strength quickly after delivering his brood and is already feeling his oats again! Yeah, that synchronized swimming that they are doing (usually described as the "Parallel Promenade" or as "carouselling" when they are circling a common holdfast in tandem) are the typical love dances of the seahorse. They are the warm up for the episodes of "Pumping" (by the stallion) and "Pointing" (by the female) that lead up to the copulatory rise, so if you keep a close eye on your mated pair you may get to witness the transfer of the eggs.

Best of luck with your amorous seahorses, Jan!

Happy Trails!
