The ORA® Capetive-Bred Seahorse is a medium-sized seahorse sporting distinctive stripes of a tiger. The stunning species is mostly colored black or yellow and has stunning starburst marks on the eye area. Male Tigertail Seahorses are typically darker and females typically have a lighter hue. It is a very elaborate breed, with numerous stripes and blotchy marks that can be used to disguise themselves.

Seahorses, which are considered to be social animals, thrive in a couple or within small numbers in an aquarium that is exclusively for species. A 30 gallon tank can be enough for a single pair. Add 10 gallons of water to the dimensions of the aquarium in each subsequent pair. Aquascape with branching corals, such as Gorgonians or imitation corals or plastic plants to supply the seahorses with hitching posts that they can grasp with their tails that are prehensile. Spray bars can be used to provide a gentle flow, as well as eliminate stagnant areas from the aquarium. Seahorses do not have the strength to swim preferring to make use of their prehensile tails to connect to branches of live rock or algae or even artificial decorations.

Seahorses like those that belong to the ORA® The Captive-Bred-Tigertail Seahorse can be kept with small, shy fish like tiny gobies, pipefish dragonets, and firefish. However, territorial, aggressive, or swift-moving fish don’t make ideal partners for seahorses. Seahorses could be injured by anemones, corals that have tentacles that sting or can be large enough to eat them, including brain corals. Although sea fan, Acropora corals as well as other branching corals are suitable for seahorses, they may be damaged or damaged when a Seahorse continuously tacks them. Crabs and clams can pierce an animal, which can cause a wound that can lead to secondary infections. Small ornamental crustaceans can be eaten by seahorses.

If you are considering tanks for your ORA® Captive-Bred Seahorse, stay clear of species that compete with the seahorse to eat. The captive-bred seahorses are used to eating frozen Mysis shrimp, which makes an excellent alternative to wild-caught species. They will also eat amphipods as well as other crustaceans in live rock. They will also take adult brine shrimp that are vitamin-enriched but it shouldn’t be the mainstay portion of their food. ORA® Captive-Bred Seahorses are slow and conscious feeders, and they would prefer to have two or three small meals a day.
