Barbouri Seahorses are originally from the waters of the Western Central Pacific Ocean around the Southern Sulu Sea. Barbouri Sea Horses grow to around 5 inches at full length and should be kept in an aquarium of at least 40 gallons in size to provide plenty of swimming and living room for them. Barbouri Sea Horses are peaceful members of the aquarium, and should not be kept with other more aggressive species that may attack and harm them. Barbouri Seahorses are carnivores, and should be fed meaty preparations for best health, along with mysid and brine shrimp. These sea horses can be a bit hard to care for, and should only be kept by the experienced aquarium owner.
