Acentronura gracilissimais commonly referred to as Bastard seahorse. Difficulty in the aquarium: Only for advanced aquarists. A aquarium size of at least 100 Liter is recommended. Toxicity: Toxic hazard unknown.
The offspring of Acentronura gracilissima are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Acentronura gracilissima, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Acentronura gracilissima, try breeding yourself. This will help to improve the availability of offspring in the trade and to conserve natural stocks.
(Temminck & Schlegel, 1850)
