Seahorse Frequently Asked Questions / What is the easiest kind of seahorse to take care of?

By in far the “easiest” seahorse is the Lined Seahorse, Hippcampus erectus. While it still has all the same requirements for care that other species do, it is the hardiest. And has been bred in captivity the most, so it is the best adapted to aquarium life. A close second is the Brazilian or Long Snout Seahorse, Hippocampus reidi. They tend to be very robust, healthy fish.  If you are considering getting seahorses as pets, please remember that Captive Bred seahorses are far more healthy than those caught form the wild, no matter what the species.
