What is the difference between captive bred (CB), wild caught (WC) and tank bred (TB) seahorses?

 

Seahorses are captive bred if they were born and raised in a closed aquarium system.  Wild caught seahorses are captured from the wild, in oceans around the world.  Tank bred seahorses were maricultured in enclosed sections of the ocean or in tanks filled with ocean water.
