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.
Very special thanks for the first photo of the New Caledonian thorny seahorse to Richard Bajol.
Hippocampus curvicuspis lives endemic to New Caledonia in the Western Pacific, where the seehorse is found in seagrass beds at depths of more than 6 meters.
Richard Bajol took the photo on the 12.01.15 at Noumea, New Caledonian.
