Captive breeding / propagation

The offspring of Hippocampus curvicuspis are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Hippocampus curvicuspis, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Hippocampus curvicuspis, try breeding yourself. This will help to improve the availability of offspring in the trade and to conserve natural stocks.

Hallo

Es wäre sehr interessant zu erfahren, auf Grund welches Kriteriums das Tier auf diesem Foto von H. histrix abgegrenzt wurde.

Gruss Ben
