More than 50 species of seahorses exist. They are found in both warm tropical seas and chilly waters. All but one species thrive in marine (i.e., saltwater) environments. Seahorses are primarily marine fish, although a few species have been found living in brackish rivers. The seahorse occasionally sold as “freshwater seahorses” are actually freshwater pipefish. These are related to seahorses, but true seahorses cannot live in fresh water. The animals live in grass beds, kelp forests, mangroves and around corals. Colonies have been found in European waters, including England’s Thames Estuary.

Equine heads, Bony Plates, and Curly Tails

Seahorses are found in shallow tropical and temperate waters. They prefer to live in sheltered areas like mangroves, sea grass beds, estuaries and coral reefs. They get their name from their heads that resemble those of horses. Though it may not look it, the seahorse is actually a fish. Though it doesn't have the scales associated with fish, the seahorse does have a skeletal makeup, thanks to a fused jaw and bony plates. Sea horses are poor swimmers and generally swim in an upright position. They propel themselves by using a small fin on their back that flutters up to 35 times per second, and anchor themselves with their tails to sea grasses and corals. Most seahorses use camouflage to blend in with their surroundings. SIGRID OLSEN COASTAL Tropical Fish Seahorse 3pc F/Q Quilt SET Sea Life BEACH NEW…

Optimum temperature is dependent on whether the seahorse species being kept are tropical, subtropical or temperate. Seahorses do better at cooler temperatures than one would use for other tropical fish. Generally, most beginners should start with tropical species unless the tank is equipped with a chiller unit. Heating tanks is much less expensive than cooling them. Use a high quality submersible heater, but ensure that the heater has a guard to prevent burns, as a seahorse may hitch to the heater. Allow about 4-watts per gallon when selecting an aquarium heater.
