Finally!! after 4 months of them dancing two of my H. Comes are preggo!! One looks like he is about to pop. I'm so excited and also very nervous about it, especially because its the first fish I've bred! Pics to come!

lol I feel so bad for the male he looks like he swallowed a balloon. He doesnt move around too much either, just sits and chills in the clove polyps. :)

oh no....my gf wants me to set her up a sea horse tank....i better hide this thread from her lol.

but seriously though..how hard are they to keep. i hear they have a short life span in aquariums. How old are your breeders?

One year old. They are not hard to care of, its just hard to keep their tank clean.
Most people rule them out because they need little to no competition for food, places to hitch, no stinging corals or too high of flow, also they are prone to disease so its best to read up on that. They really are not hard to take care of. And they start breeding in no time!

But, dont just jump into owning them read!! (Best advise ever lol)
