    What is your source for this info?

    It's not true... there is a single species from the Galapagos that are indeed critically endangered. The common species you see in our tanks is still nice and abundant.

    These "things" are verifiable.... I'm not saying that in a snippety kind of way. But there is a IUCN.org website. When seahorses became red listed years ago, we had to watch this list closely.
