Photo of the Week - Hippocampus elongatus

This is a very rarely seen seahorse, brought in on special order for a public aquarium that wants to breed them. They are gorgeous and from the look of it, already way ahead of the game on the breeding schedule. The male (very pregnant) is a dark red / purple color, though they are commonly seen in other colors like white, yellow, tan and even blue. The female is a yellow / orange color, and they are generally this color, or a slight variation of it.
