The Tiger Snout Seahorse (Hippocampus subelongatus) can be found among estuaries or calm lagoons, among seagrass and stretches of seaweed. They prefer calm areas with high amounts of silt and nutrients, as that is where they can find the most food. They range in color from brown, white, orange, red and purple, all of which have the striped design on their snout, and possibly body. Keep seahorses in a dedicated tank with other peaceful fish such as pipefish, small gobies or chromis. These amazing animals require some rock-work and plants to anchor themselves. It is recommended that gorgonians be used for this to prevent any tail damage from something that is rough. It is recommended to feed seahorses 4 x a day. Do not overfeed, remove any leftover foods. Monitor water quality frequently.
