I think they're probably the spotted seahorse, Hippocampus kuda, also known amongst other things as the "common seahorse" or "estuary seahorse". It looks like H. moluccensis in the Allen/Erdmann book but that has quite recently been accepted as a synonym of H. kuda, as have H. polytaenia and H. taeniopterus.
