Captive breeding / propagation

The offspring of Hippocampus waleananus are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Hippocampus waleananus, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Hippocampus waleananus, try breeding yourself.
