The ORA Colored Lined Seahorse is one of the US native species that ranges from Nova Scotia, Canada and the northern Gulf of Mexico all the way down to Panama and Venezuela. It is one of the hardiest species and it will grow to a maximum length of 7.5”.
ORA’s Lined Seahorses will thrive on frozen mysis and should be fed at least 2 to 3 times a day. Their diet may be supplemented by running a refugium attached to the tank.
Their coloration may vary from yellow to orange and red depending on their surroundings.
In order to maintain coloration, we suggest keeping them in bright lighting with brightly colored objects that they may use as hitches. A light blue background can also be helpful in maintaining a lighter color.
