Oh. Sorta looks like a Zebra Seahorse but I can't really tell.

It is a Hippocampus Whitei I believe, or White's Seahorse; Zebra seahorses are generally continuous in striping down the body, where White's usually stop striping on the snout.
However, due to not having the size of the seahorses, one can simply keep guessing, as the general seahorse changes colors to blend in!

Aah ok! I'm not familiar with most sea horse species ^^' though they used to be my favorite when I was a toddler. Thank you!

No problem, I am only well versed with the few I bred; there are very minute details that separate them (like spines from head to tail) but they all look alike; stripes, spots and spines are the only way to properly identify (though it helps to have the measurements!)

Ah ok! What do you breed them for? Like for pet stores or? I've no knowledge of requirements or laws regarding seahorses. Yea seahorses are one of those fish that need to have a small detail for you to notice the differenence.

I bred them to help my Oceanography teacher. It started as an Independent study project in High School (seahorses are one of the most difficult sea critters to keep), but I found Marine Science was my passion and I adore seahorses. Out of the thousands born only one or two survive, so you don't get many from them; one wrong issue with your tank and the seahorse gets sick and dies. :/

There is currently no laws (beside fishing perimeters in parts of the ocean seahorses thrive) to protect them, however if a person decides to own them they should properly research and prepare for at least a year (and buy farm raised seahorses, not wild caught) as all the seahorse breeds are currently on the endangered list for bycatch, caught for selling purposes (dried seahorse, medicine or to sell for aquariums), getting tangled in litter, etc.
