Reidi Seahorse, Captive-Bred Information
This tiny fish is more smooth than many of the seahorse species, but nevertheless, it displays a range of colors as well as the ability to rapidly change color to provide camouflage. It’s a weak swimmer who likes to steal small prey from its hideout in mangroves, seagrass or gorgonian corals, swiftly suctioning them into its teeth-less snout. They are mates for life with complex bonding rituals and courtship and the male bears the embryos into the brood pouch. The longsnout seahorses can reach 7 inches and live between one and four years old.
