Just because you have less room for error. Less water volume means if something bad gets into your tank it's harder to control because it can over take everything in a smaller amount of time. I had a 10 gallon seahorse tank with no problems at all, It's really not as hard like others say unless you try to cram a whole bunch of stuff in there you don't have room for.

Nah that's y I'm only sticking to 1 fish and 1 crustacean, I love the movement of corals and they are my main things I want, like the fish just cause the mrs don't get having coral only and daughter has just found finding nemo lol! Everyone wins then. Are there any other clean up crew I can get that will aid to the cleaning with not much bio load? And congrats on the seahorse tank, heard they are one of the hardest to keep in a home aquarium

Steer clear of crushed coral if someone didn't already mention.

Get aragonite sand. It helps buffer PH. CC traps detritus and raises nitrates.
