Tiger-Tail Seahorse – Captive-Bred



Select Variant
This stunning Captive-Bred species is black and yellow in appearance and has stunning marks around the eyes. They are spotted with numerous stripes and marks that are blotchy, giving them great camouflage. To achieve the best results, seahorses need to keep in an individual only tank for species that is 30 gallons or greater with several Gorgonians that they can grasp using their long tails. If the tank is not equipped with Gorgonians or plastic plants, they can be substituted. The Seahorse Tiger-Tail reacts badly when confronted by more aggressive fish like gobies, blennies, tobies, wrasses and porcupinefish. Captive-Bred seahorses can breed quickly in aquariums once they reach maturity. Males will be the ones to carry the newborn for around 3 weeks. At that the time when they are let out into the sea. Set up a separate aquarium that has living rocks for the newly Sea Horses born. Feed them fresh newly hatched brine shrimp with vitamin enrichment. A Tiger-Tail Seahorse is an inscrutable and deliberate feeder, which means that swift, aggressive fish can compete with it for food. Seahorses generally get along with pipefish. However, they are a little more efficient eaters than seahorses and might not leave enough food. Seahorses that are Captive-Bred are used to eating frozen mysis shrimp, which are recommended to be served to them at least two times every day.

Helpful Questions From Clients
Frequently Asked Questions
Is hiring a professional necessary to set up a saltwater aquarium?

As a general rule, a larger custom aquarium might require installation by a professional. However, a kit from our online fish store is relatively affordable and beginner friendly. That means you should have no problem setting it up yourself.

Which saltwater aquarium fish should you choose when starting out?

Consider a yellow tang fish. This popular saltwater aquarium fish does a great job of coexisting with other types of fish you’ll find in our online fish store.

How does a saltwater aquarium differ from a freshwater one?

Saltwater aquariums require a bit more maintenance and monitoring than freshwater tanks. Different fish require different levels of salinity, pH tolerances, and temperature requirements. They also require specialized pumps, filters, and other equipment that can handle salt. We can guide you through everything you need to know to set up a healthy, thriving reef tank.

Do fish in a saltwater aquarium swim in a school?

That depends on the species. However, if it’s a fish that swims in a school in the wild, they’ll do the same in an aquarium. Some fish that swim in schools include the green and blue chromis, cardinalfish, and dartfish, for example. When ordering from an online fish store, make sure you do your research on how specific fish species behave to ensure they’ll school (or at least coexist) with your current fish.

Is the effort required to maintain a saltwater aquarium worth it?

Yes! Many aquarists dream of owning thriving saltwater aquariums. You have a tiny piece of the ocean in your home, featuring magical and exotic fish that can only survive in saltwater.
