Slender seahorse

Hippocampus reidi

The hallmark of the Gdynia Aquarium is a fish swimming upright – a sea horse. Most of the time seahorses spend wrapped with a catchy tail, e.g. to a plant stem. Seated in this way, they look for prey, allowing each of the two eyes to act independently. Females place eggs in male breeding bags, where they develop later on. When the little horses are ready, they leave the male’s bag.
