You did cycle the tank right? Also IMO your tank is too small for regular SH`s. The only kind that can make it in a ten gallon is dwarf seahorses.

When are you getting your 120G? Because if they become full grown in that tank it's not ok.

Snow, relax. People are just asking questions.. we're not judging or telling you what to do either. I think it's pretty cool you're doing a sea horse tank, but they aren't the easiest of things to take care of.

Also, we just get suspicious when people say things like, "yeah it's cycled or it's been cycling, etc.." since that usually means they've just let the tank sit for a while and consider it cycled. We've seen it so many times, and it still happens all the time, so we get tired of seeing the whole tank go up in flames because people don't do things right. If you say it's cycled, i believe you, because of what happened with your last tank i'm sure you know what the consequences are of not cycling your tank and just adding livestock.

I hope you stay on the forums and follow up on your build. Would like to see how it comes along.

umm yea, i used a small shrimp about 2 weeks ago and let it almost completely disvole. it took around 4 1/2 days, the ammonia went up to i dunno it was max BLUE on the drip kit. it went zero a few days ago and has been zero. The LFS really didnt wanna hold the horses any longer due to a new shipment coming in and they didnt have room. So i went picked em up, and also some new coral. ill post a pic of them tommarow in there new tank. So far they seem OK.

Sweet. Looking forward to those pictures.

And don't worry, a 120 isn't too small for pretty much anything. With a tank that size, you just have to worry about overstocking with too many beautiful fish! Temptation may be great, but you'll have to restrain yourself otherwise you could bomb your whole tank. :p But that's another subject for another time, so worry about it when you cross that bridge.
