Hippocampus comes

« posted: 2 years ago »
One of the first species I got in 2003 were tiger tails. The pair were small brownish and very shy. I don't remember where I got them from but they never produced any fry so I got another pair which were supposed to be CB, but they came in an unhealthy state and didn't last that long in my tank.

Later I was given some tiger tail fry to raise and I really liked them although they were much harder than erectus. Eventually I had so many erectus to raise that I lost interest in the comes and kuda seahorses.

1 & 2 the original H.comes

2 & 3 the newer pair just before release into my 37 tall tank. The male had to go directly into the critter keeper so I could keep an eye on him.

Bruce I have comes right now! Your were beautiful with bold colors. Here is Tatsu one of mine.  I agree they are more difficult than erectus.  Mine only took off when they learned to eat from a feeding station, as they are slow deliberate feeders.

They are so slender and graceful!  And I love the colors of both of your seahorses!
