Information on Barbouri Seahorse, Captive-Bred
This Barbouri Seahorse is highly desirable by enthusiasts because it amazingly illustrates an “classic” seahorse look. The pronounced spines, the striking zebra stripes on the snout and an enticing five-point “crown” contribute to the stunning beauty of these beautiful seahorses.
They thrive when they are kept as an mated pair or small groups in an aquarium that is exclusively for species. A 30 gallon tank can be enough for a single pair. Increase the 10 gallons dimensions of the aquarium for each pair. Spray bars can be utilized to allow for gentle flow as well as eliminate stagnant areas from the aquarium. Seahorses aren’t very strong swimmers and prefer to utilize their prehensile tails attach to live rock branches algae, artificial decorations.
