AAHHH Ive crossed the line to MTS But Sea horses???

My son wanted to have a sea horse tank so I converted his 10 gallon fresh. Can someone tell me if I am on track so far. I am reading & reading and will not buy until I have a grasp on this and my tank is cycled so about a month or two. Heres my start so far.

10 gallon with 2 3/4 to 3 inch DSB one large coral spikey so they can hold on. An extra large clam shell, 3 cups gravel from my two year old reef to get the bacteria jump started. In the transfer I ended up with 4 very small snails and a very small star. I have a hang on filter in the back and general cheap lighting ( came with the tank ) 200 or 250 maxi jet power head very low current compared to the reef. I will be picking up a skimmer as soon as I can find one small enough.

So, how an I doing???

Love to see a picture of that... I really dont have room. I have a 45 gallon that is stacked to the top with LR & corals already. I only have a small area in the front for fish to swim.....It really is a great tank. I need to get a digital...

Is it sad that Im old enough to remember watching your guy... Captin America I believe.....

greatest american hero !! hehehehe

ya missing what im saying !! dont put the 10 gallon in your main tank so then your 45 gallon turns into a 55 gallon !! just have the main tanks water flowing into the 10 gallon and then back out into your sump or back into the main tank !!

reefobsessed, check out http://www.seahorse.org/ and http://www.sygnathid.org/

you might also consider PMing Hara, she keeps seahorses. Unless they are the pygmy seahorses...I don't think a 10 is big enough.
