Captive breeding / propagation

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

Seepferdchen sind generell Expertentiere, die ein Artenbecken benötigen! 50er-Würfel sind die Mindestmasse in alle Richtungen! Etwas grösser ist jedoch besser.
H. comes halten sich gerne an harten Gegenständen fest. Als Futter kommt in Gefangenschaft fast ausschliesslich Mysis zum Einsatz. Neugeborene H. comes schwimmen mit aufgerolltem Schwanz herum. Unter den Meerwasserfischen sind sie relativ gut nachzüchtbar. Kaufen Sie bitte nur Nachzuchten!
