Hi eco2tz, I'd need a photo to help you ID these

For background, we regularly see Hippocampus histrix at this site but on occasion I see one (possibly two) other species that I have been unable to positively ID. Researching the area and papers about it I have seen the following mentioned: H. borboniensis (possibly also boroniensis), kuda and fuscus the only photo I have online at present is at the following link. I will try to get more photos up (apologies but internet connections here are very slow).

There are also customer images at the following links. These represent one (possibly two) additional species, to the Hippocampus histrix that we see here. https://www.flickr.com/photos/hannahjaneb/14069799169/in/set-72157644765917036 https://www.flickr.com/photos/hannahjaneb/14254038405/in/set-72157644765917036 https://www.flickr.com/photos/hannahjaneb/14274212203/in/set-72157644765917036/
