Weedy Seadragon videos

« posted: 5 years ago »
I found some recently posted seadragon videos that are really cool. They're by Pang Quong, of PQ Aquatics. He's the guy that supplies most of the sea dragons around the world.

Mating Dance:


The feeding video was especially interesting to me because of how nonplussed they are around all the other fish. Just not what I expected from these "fragile" fish.

There is a pretty big weedy seadragon collection at both the Georgia and the Tennessee Aquariums. Have you seen them?

I haven't, though I did meet a few aquarists that work down at the Georgia Aquarium, including one responsible for the weedies. She both cared for them and was one of the people responsible for their breeding efforts. Georgia Aquarium is one of only a handful of aquariums that have been successful in breeding weedy seadragons.

I'd really love to get down there one of these days. The entire thing sounds amazing, even discounting the seadragons. I believe the Georgia Aquarium has been successful breeding weedies, which is huge. Nobody has cracked the Leafy Seadragon breeding yet though.
