Check out this website

I hope it's not to late to feed them. Good luck.

I agree on the pictures. Did you get them fed? It looks like rotifers or freshly hatched brine shrimp are the options. Sorry I couldn't be more informative, I don't have seahorses I just read through that website for some research as I would love to try some one of these days when I have more free time. I hope all goes well.

I possibly have another 1 or 2 pregnant and looks like two of them were just doing special dance.

The babies are adorable, they will eat the same food as the adults. I fed mine newly hatched brine shrimp. Babies should feed a few times a day.

Thats great! Ive read that it's best to Keep the babies in a fish bowl with a sponge filter making it easier for them to get food if thats thats the Only thing in there. What's your tank setup? I'm interested in getting some eventually.

Setup is a 3 gallon bowfront with a 2.5 gallon sump/fuge with a cheap powerhead for a return pump.
