Common Names: Dwarf Seahorse

Characteristics: H. zosterae are a very small seahorse. In the wild they are typically found with cirri. They tend to lose the cirri in captivity. Colors typically range from black, brown, grey, green, yellow, orange, red. Colors are not fixed and may change based surroundings, diet, stress, mood or possibly other factors.

Distribution: Southern Atlantic Coast of the US and in the Gulf of Mexico.

Habitat: Commonly found in sea grasses along coastal areas.

Size: Commonly 1 to 1.5 inches.

Sexual Maturity: Around 3 months. Fry are benthic and may be reared with adults.

Minimum Tank Size Recommendations: Because of the size of this species and the fact that they must be fed live baby brine shrimp and/or copepods, selecting the right tank is crucial. Generally we recommend keeping small herds in 2 to 5 gallon tanks. Advanced aquarists may find success in larger tanks, but generally you will need a larger herd for larger tanks.

Water Temperature: 72 to 77 degrees Fahrenheit. 22 to 25 degrees Celsius.

H. Zosterae require live foods! You must be capable of supplying live baby brine shrimp to successfully keep this species!

Availability: Currently on hold pending the outcome of this species being listed on the Endangered Species Act (ESA)!   A petition was submitted by the Center for Biological Diversity to have this species listed.   Since it is illegal to buy, sell, trade or own animals listed on the ESA we have a hold on breeding this species until the Government makes a ruling.

Shipping: Ships FedEx Priority Overnight

Note:  Most customers order multiples of this species.  In general, we try to give a mix of males and females.

Characteristics: Hybids can take on the characteristics of either H. erectus or H. reidi.  We find they most commonly are a compromise of the two.  Typically thinner in the body than H. erectus but thicker than H. reidi.  May show either the lines of H. erectus or the spots of H. reidi.  Colors tend to be bright as H. reidi when they color up.  Colors can range from black, brown, grey, green, yellow, orange, and red. Colors are not fixed and may change based on surroundings, diet, stress, mood or possibly other factors. May or may not have saddle markings.  May also have cirri but not as common as H. erectus.

Distribution: Not commonly found in the wild but can occur anywhere where the two species habitats overlap.

Habitat: Again, Not commonly found in the wild but would be found in estuaries, sea grasses, mangrove roots, sponges, gorgonians, stone corals and artificial structures.

Size: Commonly 6 to 8 inches.  Males typically larger than females.

Sexual Maturity: Around 4 months. Hybrid (H. erectus X H. reidi) fry are smaller than H. erectus but larger than H. reidi.  They do go through a pelagic phase.  We have succeeded using both copepods and enriched artemia as a first food.  Best results were with using copepods for the first few days.

Minimum Tank Size Recommendations: 18 inches vertical height. 30 gallons for a pair.  30 to 40 gallons for 2 pairs.

Water Temperature: 72 to 77 degrees Fahrenheit. 22 to 25 degrees Celsius.

This is a motile cell, known for its nutrional properties but is a bit tricky to raise. It is less tolerant of high light conditions initially but can be pushed as the cell densities increase. Has been used in bivalve aquaculture and can be used as an enrichment for rotifers or artemia. Cell culture can be finicky. Use f/2 media as a feed.

Temperature range: 52º -79º F (11º-26º C).

Approximate cell size: 1 µ wide by 3-6 µ long.
