Corral reef

I was wondering is it possible to make some sort of a coral reef in an aquarium and also to put some sea horses in it as well. The size of the aquarium would be about 60l - 100l tank

you indeed could put corals and seahorses, but they are very hard to keep and micro bubbles in the water can get under their skin and rot them from the inside

What size of tank would you advise and is there anyway to prevent those microbubbles to kill them

just make sure your pumps are not sucking air and that if you have a sump it is properly designed with baffles to stop micro bubbles from entering the return. Didn't know that about sea horses but have never tried to keep them either.
