Seahorses live in tropical or temperate waters. If you've ever watched them for awhile, you may have noticed that they eat slowly and often.

Ever wonder why? It's because they don't have stomachs!

      If you do get a seahorse, be sure to get one that was raised in captivity - they are more suited for tanks and will live longer. "Captured" seahorses die quickly in captivity. The practice of "capturing" endangers some breeds as well, so even if they are cheaper, I recommend paying more for "bred" seahorses.... good luck!
