In a statement on its website, SEA LIFE Melbourne wrote: "For the sixth time, we have proven ourselves to be incredibly skilled when it comes to breeding weedy sea dragons and raising them into adulthood.
“This is such a rare feat and further highlights that this weedy sea dragon breeding program continues to be one of the most successful in the world,” the aquarium said.
