Great seahorse

The Great seahorse lives in the bathydemersal, non-migratory, marine, depth range - 120 m environment.

Information on the great seahorse is currently being researched and written and will appear here shortly . More

great seahorse can also grow to be over a foot long and should be kept in a large tank of at least 40 gallons or more. The temperature of the tank should be at least 70 degrees but no more than 80 degrees. More

The Great Seahorse is not often available for sale in the saltwater aquarium trade. When you do find some, expect to pay a modest price for them ($25 to $50 USD). More

The Great Seahorse is a gentle giant that brings a graceful touch of exoticism to any suitable home aquarium. Like other seahorses, Hippocampus kelloggi has a stunning body form that harkens bygone ages. More

Fast, aggressive fish will out-compete the Great Seahorse for food. When first introduced into the aquarium, live saltwater feeder shrimp should be used to entice this fish to eat. This Tank-Bred Seahorse is accustomed to frozen mysis shrimp, making it a smart alternative to its wild-caught counterparts. More

The Great Seahorse will also feed upon amphipods and other small crustaceans found in live rock. It will accept vitamin-enriched adult brine shrimp, but this should not make up a majority of their diet. More
