Stellar Specimens

When utilizing techniques such as selective breeding, the results can be marvelous. These seahorses have distinctive features that make them very unique and unlike their brood-mates. Cerri is a term used for elongated branching that extends from the face and the back of the head in Hippocampus erectus species. This allows them to blend in with their surroundings as they ambush their prey. Unique saddling refers to wide banding that starts from the tail of the seahorse and winds colorfully to the crown. This is excellent camouflage when stalking prey next to grass beds. These traits are highly sought after and will bring wonder to your aquarium.
