Weedy seadragon colour variation

Recommended Posts

With something so great to look at as your weedy's and leafy's, why did we have to import Lionfish into the carib instead of these?

I've found most of our Weedy's in Albany WA to be the greener variety, however I have found an orange variation as well. The green one is the most likely you will encounter.

I wonder if the colour variation has to do with their diet?

A number of people in NSW have done Masters or PhD's on Weedy's/Syngnathids but I can't find much online right now, except for these;

and you can get Booth's full report here for AU$25;

and also related to that research,

There was a group in South Australia called Dragon Search and they are now Reef Watch, couple of reports here; http://www.reefwatch.asn.au/reports.html#ds
