Bargibant's Seahorse and Miniature Seahorse.
Im sorry, but video content will be enabled in an upcoming update. In the mean time, take a look around our amazing images provided by the awesome community here at Whats That Fish.
Also known as Bargibant's Seahorse and Miniature Seahorse.
Found singly or in small groups only on Gorgonian corals of the genus Muricella (sea fans)
These tiny creatures have evolved to resemble its host.
The camouflage and size of these Seahorses make them extremely difficult to see.
Hence my poor photo's!!!
They feed on their host coral.
Depth - 16-40m
Seahorses like Pipefish are unique in that the male gives birth!
The female deposits their eggs after fertilization into the males pouch to incubate the eggs for one month before giving birth.
Seahorses are a threatened species because it is sought after for Chinese medicine.
