Very nice...dwarves are some of my favourites. Been a while since I have had an ongoing artemia hatchery, although I have 4-5 in storage. On chap I knew that spawned his seahorses cleverly ran his nauplii through an IV drip system to constantly feed his babies.

Ah.. the reason you can't see them in the tank is because I took the picture before I got them. Their tank now looks kinda funky with the odd arrangement of decor to get the water circulating enough to move the water but slow enough to let the seahorses do their thing. They are about 1-2 inches

omg!! So I was over estimating their size then!! holy small!!! I'd die to have them (or at least see them in person!!)
Are they a natural species? I know seahorses are small but these guys, were they man made??

Yep they are natural. They live in the gulf coast Oh and I have more pictures I got 6 more today:






Now how many seahorses are in this picture? I get to play this game daily during their feeding hehe


They are extremely social. Everyone wants to know what everyone else is up too. And the filter. For some reason they all want to investigate the filter. lol
