Possibly a ridiculous question...

My girlfriend wants to know if there is such thing as a freshwater seahorse?

Thanks, AA

What a ridiculous question! XD Hippocampus are primarily marine with one species "reported" in and around freshwater habitats (H. spinosissimus); More likely a freshwater inlet creating a brackish environment with more emphasis of seawater. Of pipefish there are marine, brackish, and freshwater species.

The only bad question is the one not asked. Thanks for asking that question. James did great with his answer.

I'm glad you asked it as well. I didn't know there were freshwater pipefish.
