The Erectus Seahorse, Hippocampus erectus, also known as the Lined Seahorse or the Northern Seahorse is a captive bred species of seahorse. The Erecturs Seahorse have lined patterns throughout their bodies, with or without saddle marking. Colors typically range from black, brown, green, grey, yellow, orange, and red. It does best when kept as either a mated pair, or with a small group of its own kind in a species-only aquarium of 30 gallons or larger. The taller the aquarium, the better, at least 16 inches high is best, as good circulation is most important. It will get along well with small, shy fish such as gobies, and firefish. But aggressive, territorial fish, or fast-moving fish do not make good companions.
