I don't know if you meant H. reidi OR H. kelloggi, OR hybridized H. reidi/kelloggi, but in any case, even seeing them live you most times can't correctly identify them just by viewing them. Many species you can't even be sure until they are past the juvenile stage.
They do have a high coronet though so that eliminates low/flat coronet species.

thanks all for the kind words . They are erectus seahorses .< I think>
Was definitely a learning process but have about 50 survive in that batch.
although they are from the same parents some babies look completely different than others ,
They are eating Mysis now but I think I should wait another few weeks to get them bigger before selling.

As mortality rates of juveniles are still high, good breeders don't usually sell the offspring until they have reached sexual maturity when odds of success are much better.
I never sold any of my H. reidi before they were at least 6 months old because there are still some "late bloomers" where apparent females end up really being late developing males.
