Captive breeding / propagation

Die Nachzuchten von Hippocampus denise sind möglich. Leider ist die Anzahl an Nachzuchten noch nicht groß genug, um die Nachfrage des Handels zu decken. Wenn Sie sich für Hippocampus denise interessieren, fragen Sie dennoch Ihren Händler nach Nachzuchten. Sollten Sie Hippocampus denise bereits besitzen, versuchen Sie sich doch selbst einmal an der Aufzucht. Sie helfen so die Verfügbarkeit von Nachzuchten im Handel zu verbessen und natürliche Bestände zu schonen.

Husbandry

Lourie & Randall, 2003

Lives in association with gorgonian seafans (Annella reticulata, Muricella sp., and Echinogorgia sp.). Master of camouflage, with their coloration and body ornamentation in the form of tubercles, can match the stems and polyps of their gorgonian hosts.

International trade is monitored through a licensing system (CITES II, since 5.15.04).
