 Sandeep,
 sea  horses  are  not  impossible  or  very  difficult  to  breed!
 I  guess  that  some  Govt.  institute  in  Kerala  (I  dont  remember  the  name)  is  also  breeding  them  -  the  problem  though  is  that  the  sea  horses  and  the  leafy  dragons  are  under  the  schedule  1  of  the  wildlife  protection  act.
 Even  if  you  manage  to  breed  them  at  you  place  -  the  authorities  will  be  after  your  life  to  know  where  you  acquired  the  parent  stock  from!

 Sea  horses...  best  known  in  the  scientific  world  for  their  reversal  of  parental  roles.
 
 The  male  actually  "grows"  the  eggs  from  the  female  in  a  special  pouch  on  his  belly.  They  were  the  first  mention  on  "Mr.  Mom"  as  series  on  Animal  planet.  They  also  were  airing  a  programme  called  "Weird  Nature",  which  was  filled  with  such  intriguing  animal  behaviour.

 Gokul
 Pipefishes  along  with  seahorses  come  under  "Syngnathinae"
 Schedule  I,  part  IIA  entry  no  3  says  "Sea  Horse  (All  Sygnathidians).  "
 So  I  guess  they  are  as  good  as  banned.  check  this  out

 Hello!!
 I  am  told  rather  authoritatively  that  if  the  animals  are  not  native  and  we  have  papers  to  prove  it,  we  can  keep  animals  in  the  list.
 Then  the  question  would  be  how  to  import!!  I  am  making  discrete  inquiries.
 Will  revert  as  soon  as  I  have  full  details.

 They  are  illegal  to  keep  if  you  look  at  the  posts  above.
 Keeping  them  isn't  too  easy  either.  They  are  finicky,  kind  of  like  moorish  idols.
