I am not sure on the requirements for a seahorse tank, but if I had to guess I would say good water parameters and I know that don't like really bright lighting. Some seahorses will gladly take frozen while others refuse all but live foods.

i tried from my iphone

At that point if you want start a build thread then you can have a knowledgeable conversation with everyone involved.

I have never entertained that thought so I can say I have zero knowledge in that field. Sorry but for starters just google seahorse tank requirements. You will get a ton of pages.

From reading thru this thread it sounds like you want movement and colors in your tank seahorses kinda just float around and don't have much color to them. I also know there is almost very other fish u could house with them.

Are you sure? I heard that you could keep peaceful fish like Firefish with them.

Shortest answer on seahorses is that they require a species specific tank...meaning no other fish. The reason (and this is all from research not experience) is that seahorses are extremely slow moving - which means if you have other faster fish they'll steal all the food before the horses can eat. I've heard that they CAN work with pipefish, and some other small, slow movine fish...but all around I'd guess it'd be better off to go just seahorses.

in addition, while you CAN do some corals I don't know that I'd recommend it - simply put seahorses use their tails to anchor to stuff, and this can and will damage sensitive corals.

Some cool, interesting stuff. I think the kudas are beautiful, and the fact that they're tank bred is a nice bonus.
