    seahorses are my mums favourite animal :) I think that would be great... also jellyfish to add a bit more danger to the ocean.

    I agree with WaitingBaker26.  Maybe instead of a seahorse, it could be a hippocampus, which is a greek creature that looks like a sort of mer-horse.  Maybe they could come in different colors for the horse and fish parts.  That would really make it interesting.

    It seems my suggestion for giant sea-horse mounts was deemed "too similar" to this suggestion that is asking for tiny uninteractive passive mobs. In my opinion, "seahorse" shouldn't be enough for my idea to be rejected. I'd like to see sea-horses like the ones you mention, but I don't think my own suggestion for giant rideable seahorses should have been deleted. Why do I bring it up here? To ask your opinion. Do you think the idea of seahorses that are big and can be mounted is different enough from this to be its own suggestion?

    Seahorses can be a good bet for the game.
    They would be more useful for riding than adding it in its normal form as it would only serve as ornament
    Currently the only mount we can use in the sea is the skeleton horse
    Thus the seahorse is slightly smaller than the horse, with the same characteristics but with different size, color and behavior as it is a sea animal.
    Adding the seahorse as a serious mount is a great option given the limited number of mounts in the game.
    Serious also a differential of what we have in real life and serious plus the face of the game
    I already see blue horses with flippers in the ocean

    What WaitingBaker26 and aernado said is actually good ideas for the first mountable sea mob. They could be made that they can dive deep into the ocean and while be mounted they give off a water breathing effect. It would be good to add another new mob as a foe to the seahorses/hippocampus such as a shark or even giant crabs.

    Yeah honestly an underwater mount would be awesome.  Giant kelp forests seem like a fitting habit for a mysterious mythical sea creature.

    How about GIANT SEAHORSES that you can rise under water to move 2x sprinting speed?

    I don't think they should be rideable. And I completely disagree with whoever said everything added should be useful. It's a game and games are supposed to be fun. Although it'd be nice if they had uses it would still be an amazing update to the game if they didn't. I love the hippocampus idea. I love mythical creatures and mythology. Though this should be discussed in a different thread it would be an amazing addition

    They sound like they would be useful as a potion ingredient.

    @fernando galian's Whistle Horse is the best suggestion on here. It causes you to dance (rotate when singing)! And you can make a potion from it causing mobs to dance as well.

    Yaaaaaaas! Getting mad Aquaman vibes. I'd love to experience mounted combat on these badboys too.

    There's a resource pack by someone called In_Nova that turns large tropical fish into seahorses, and the model is cool. If this gets implemented, it should be somewhat based on that

    Shayla Waller I will have to disagree (amicably) with your disagreement. This add on may get two birds with one stone. Chests on boats are far too easy of a mechanic (we would just fish all day), a Llama does not fare well on open seas & a Hippocampus (HC) is essentially a mer-horse; a rose of a sea-horse by another name.
    I like the ideas of taming them with a good deal of seaweed/kelp, variable-stats/saddles/breeding on par with horses & the possibility of a chest added to an equipped saddle (might be asking too much.) However, given the pure raw awesomeness of such an addition, you would only find 2-3 HC's swimming around Ocean Monuments. It would take a lot of time to get one tamed & back home, let alone two!
    Edit: But as for specifically Sea Horses, they would make a lovely aesthetic amidst the reefs.

    What would be their purpose? If you put a new mob into minecraft it should be useful for something.

    Essentially the bats of the ocean

    I mean, technically we do have "Sea Horses" not "Seahorses" but skeleton horses can travel underwater, and breath underwater.... soooo

    @SirblockheadGMG. But she or he is Incredibly lucky to be Under Review because he or she has a chance that their mob they asked for would get added to the game.

    Find them in Kelp forests and Coral reefs. Breed 2. One sea horse drops multiple eggs and the other one picks them up. the 1 who picked them up keeps the eggs for 5-9 in-game days. Releases the baby Sea horses and the player can tame just one baby for all the babies 2 go with the player. and when they grow up the player can attach leads to 4 of the Sea horses. Press a key/ button/screen 2 tell the Sea horses to Go. U can ride them like a land horses. and when u want 2 stop the sea horses just Press a button/key/screen 2 stop them. My idea.

    Yes there should, it could be a large sea horse creature that  eats kelp, and you can breed them with kelp. Also they would make a fast way of travel as they could be the first mob, for underwater transport! Which would be EPIC and would make the oceans more interesting to go to. Also maybe a few variations of it? And the they can change colour just like real sea horses. And to more unique it could look like half horse and the other half a big fish tail! Sigh... I hope someone reads this...
