Hippocampus Reidi

Hippocampus Reidi is known as the Longsnout Seahorse or the Brazilian Seahorse. This beautiful seahorse can reach 10 inches in length and exhibit a variety of colors during its life cycle. They are found in and around sea grass beds from North Carolina to Florida and from the Caribbean to Brazil. Males can carry broods of up to 1,000 young in their pouches, with larger males carrying even more young.

Of the thousands of Brazilians born in each brood, only a small percentage may live to become adults. In the past, this has been enough to keep their populations thriving. Today, collectors remove large numbers of them for the aquarium trade. The more that are taken, the fewer that are left to reproduce—putting Brazilian populations in danger. We breed these seahorses in our state of the art facility so that wild pairs are protected. Due to their popularity, our stock fluctuates throughout the year. Please contact us for availability.
