    It's not the smallest seahorse, though. Hippocampus denise is, I think.

    I agree! The article states that it is one of the smallest. The title of the article is a bit misleading.

    OH no that's not great news at all & I've just started speaking to my sister again since the spill started & now it's going to be silence between us again as I'm getting the H. zosterea which I really adore soon & she works for BPSA. :(

    Although the spill is large you a person needs to keep in mind that they are looking at a "worst case scenario". I am aware of a number of areas which has not been affected and where dwarf Sea-horses are common. Combined with the fact that the aquarium trade has a good breeding track record with these guys, they will be around for many years to come. All we can hope for is that the needed conservation methods are in place to allow the species to thrive yet again.
