Colors are not fixed and may change based on the Erectus Seahorse's surroundings, diet, stress level, or mood. They are some of the most hardy seahorses available in the aquarium trade. The Erectus Seahorse can be paired as a male and female and can be mated in a tank. A pair should be kept in a tank of at least 30 gallons. These seahorses may or may not have cerri, or elongated skin extensions. In the tank, the Erectus Seahorse should have plenty of structures or things for it to grab onto with their tails. They can reach a maximum size of 7 inches with males being larger than females.
