The Weedy seadragon is Phycodures Eques.

The Leafy Seadragon is Phyllopteryx Taeniolatus.

Sea dragons are not available to the aquarium trade, don't forget.

While all of us syngnathid-lovers would adore the opportunity to keep a sea dragon, it likely ain't happening any time soon.

Ocean Rider was able to win the lottery tp obtain a single pregnant male in 2006. Three years later, with a great deal of effort spent, they still have not succeeded in obtaining tank-bred offspring (as far as I know).

Actually, they are. I've seen them (Weedy Seadragon) for sale on LiveAquaria for just over $3 000.00.

Sounds like something for an aquarium, like a actual aquarium, that cities have. If you guys catch my drift lol. 6 million gallon type stuff that supports itself.
