This is a pregnant Tigertail seahorse (Hippocampus comes) and grows to a max of 15cm.

The male carries the eggs in a brood pouch below their chest which holds from 1 – 2,000 eggs and the pregnancy takes from 1 to 4 weeks.

They eat small fish, coral, small shrimp, and plankton.

The most common pattern is alternating yellow and black.
