The Spotted Denise Pygmy Seahorse is also a color form of the Hippocampus denise and not a separate species. This interesting fish can only be found in certain species of Gorgonian fan coral and can be observed and photographed when diving with our experienced spotters. The tiny fish are always pink to rose colored with red and yellow spots all over their body.
