Captive breeding / propagation The offspring of Hippocampus colemani are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Hippocampus colemani, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Hippocampus colemani, try breeding yourself. This will help to improve the availability of offspring in the trade and to conserve natural stocks.
