Captive breeding / propagation

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

Husbandry

Jordan & Snyder, 1901

Hippocampus kelloggi has a relatively wide range throughout much of the Indo-Pacific. It has been recorded from Zanzibar in Tanzania, Pakistan, India, and southeast Asia, and north to China and Japan as well as Australia. This species has a suspected distribution including the east coast of Africa (North of Zanzibar), the Red Sea, the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman (Lourie et al. 2004).
Hippocampus kelloggi is one of the five most reported species in international trade (Evanson et al. 2011, UNEP-WCMC 2012a), although it is unclear how much of the natural population, this trade represents.
