One of the more challenging species of the sea horse variety the Dwarf Seahorse is one of Mrs. Salty's favorite fish. They do best in a group of 4 or more and prefer a smaller size tank making it easier for them to concentrate food. Your aquarium should have a sponge filter if you want to keep these little guys and live rock and live sand may contain stinging animals that can be aggressive towards this seahorse.


It likes to grasp seagrass or other items with its prehensile tail. They require a diet of copepods, freshly-hatched baby brine shrimp, and other shrimp larvae. Snails, micro hermits, and small pipefish are safe to keep with them however, the pipefish generally out-compete it for food.
