Captive breeding / propagation

Die Nachzuchten von Hippocampus zebra sind möglich. Leider ist die Anzahl an Nachzuchten noch nicht groß genug, um die Nachfrage des Handels zu decken. Wenn Sie sich für Hippocampus zebra interessieren, fragen Sie dennoch Ihren Händler nach Nachzuchten. Sollten Sie Hippocampus zebra 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.
