The seahorse, like all of the species of the family Syngnathidae, require living food. They are unable to move rapidly enough to chase their prey. Instead, the seahorse uses its elongated snout to suck in small crustaceans. Seahorses have an almost pinpoint accuracy within the 1 inch range. Young Hippocampus erectus may feed for as long as ten hours of each day and consume up to 3600 baby brine shrimp during that time. (Herald, 1961, pg. 147; Moyle and Cech,1982, pg. 294)
