Wanting H Comes.

« posted: 1 year ago »
Looking for Hippocampus Comes for sale.
My aquarium is up and cycling now. I currently have dwarf seahorses and have had erectus before.
Such beautiful creatures. Would love to have some of those horses.
Thanks for any info

You could check and see if Seahorse Source has H comes in stock.
  • H erectus, banded pipefish

I have been working with comes for over 8 years and they are a beautiful seahorse. They can become very large like erectus although they do have a narrower body. The only commercial breeder in the US that occasionally has comes available is DanU from SeahorseSource. Please avoid buying any of the tiny comes from your LFS as they have a very poor survival rate. Comes have been considered to be nocturnal by many and they do not like bright light, although they will adapt to increased light over time. They typically are less outgoing than erectus and are harder to keep. Their fry are pelagic and do best on copepods as their first food which make  them difficult to raise.

I don't want to discourage you, I just want to to be sure you understand comes are nothing like erectus.
