Default Species Identification Help Pls

Hi all, I'm new on here, and would need help with something.

I have these 2 seahorses, and I'm not sure what they are exactly. I have been looking at hundreds of pictures on the net and I'm very confused about the identification of Reidi and Erectus seahorses. Some of the Erectus have very distinct line marking and/or proturberances but some that are being sold or identified by people who seem to know their stuff look almost like Reidi. Does anybody have a defenite way of identifying them?

They just had about 150 babies 2 days ago.

Here are some pics of parents and babies.

I am not sure the breed of Seahorses you have there but I am curious if you were able to keep the babies alive?
