Identify Seahorse Species
My LFS got a shipment of seahorses in recently and I was wondering if anyone here could figure out the precise species pictured as I haven't gotten an answer from them. I was considering one in a few months for my 37 cube but I'd like to get more information so I can do some research on them.

Could it be a tiger-tail seahouse (Hippocampus comes) ? It does certainly looks like one, but the coloring is not very typical for one. Or at least that is based on all the pics I have seenIf you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

Yeah, I can see that. I'd actually hope as much, since they seem to be one of the easier species.كل نفس ذائقة الموت ثم الينا ترجعون

Ok, I finally heard back from the LFS, they looked into it and think it's a Kuda. Accordiny to my preliminary research they get about six inches and should work in a 37, right?كل نفس ذائقة الموت ثم الينا ترجعون

There are different types of Kuda, so I'm not entirely sure. According liveaquaria.com they can grow to 11 Inches and need a min of 55Gal.. I have no way of knowing for sure though.

Yeah, I saw that, but then I've seen several other sites claiming they grow only to six inches, so I've no ideaكل نفس ذائقة الموت ثم الينا ترجعون
