Captive breeding / propagation

The offspring of Hippocampus ingens are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Hippocampus ingens, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Hippocampus ingens, try breeding yourself. This will help to improve the availability of offspring in the trade and to conserve natural stocks.

Husbandry

Ähnlich wie H. erectus... siehe dortige Beschreibung zur Haltung.

Ist aber deutlich grösser als H. errectus. Wie Benn Kimmich schon richtig anregt ist Artemina nicht das optimale Futter für Seepferdchen.

Artemien sind kein geeignetes Futter für Seepferdchen!
