Hippocampus kuda are native to the Indo-Pacific region. These seahorses are slender, have short snouts with large neads. They often have many small dark spots with rounded spikes along their necks. Our captive bred kuda are light yellow in color. This species is found in shallow water with habitats of sea grass beds and mangrove swamps found in sheltered coastal areas.
These seahorses will do great in reef tanks with live coral, but prefer a species-only tank as they are peaceful and slow moving animals. Seahorses change their body color based on their surroundings, so be sure to stick with bright yellow, orange and blue decorations. With a pristine tank, enough fresh or frozen mysis shrimp, and the proper care, these seahorses will thrive!
