Seahorse Frequently Asked Questions / Where can I buy Sea Dragons?

Realistically, you can’t. While it’s not illegal to own one, they are very difficult to keep and so are usually only sold to public aquariums. Australia only allows the harvest of a small number of pregnant males which release their young in captivity. They are then raised up and sold around the world, mostly to public aquariums and zoos. They generally cost a few thousand dollars for each seadragon. The aquarium and equipment needed to keep them runs tens of thousands of dollars. So next time you see them at your public aquarium, consider donating!
