@thomasabenson Thank you for sharing your observation. This seahorse is Hippocampus comes, the tiger tail seahorse. I can tell because this seahorse is spiny (has spines along its body), has a striped tail and a double cheek spine. We have a few handy ID guides on our iSeahorse website for Southeast Asian Seahorses. Check it out if interested. https://www.iseahorse.org/Taxa/IdGuides
